Project LIFE Energy as implemented in thirteen SPAs (Special Protection Areas) in the period of 1st September 2014 - 31st December 2019 and was aimed at protecting the ten priority bird species. Project pages are currently updated only on an occasional basis.
An opportunity to sit down safely on power lines and experience how birds may feel in such a situation – that is exactly what this unique exhibition within the LIFE ENERGY project offers. The exhibition is currently in the Centro – Shopping Centre in Nitra.
The exposition uses its original way to show the consequences of using electricity for birds. Nowadays it seems impossible to imagine your life without electricity, although it has only been some 50 years since the electrification of all municipalities in Slovakia was completed in the second half of the 20th century.
The exhibition consists of presentation photo-wall with a stage, where electric pylons with the real power lines and flight diverters are installed. The back part of the wall provides information in kind of comix form - animated pictures with the texts that give general overview of the topic and about the project. The Exhibition is presented under the auspices of the Ministry of Environment of the Slovak Republic.
It is promoted on social networks (#sittingonaline, #LifeEnergy).
