The Estonian Fund for Nature organizes 17–19. September during the Matsalu Nature Film Festival (MAFF) in Vatla quarry.

The workers remove the bush so that Vatla’s quarry remains the lifeblood of the toads. Kadri Aller, the head of ELF’s field office, said that the work is affordable for everyone – everyone is doing as they are doing.

Horned toads are threatened by habitat loss – coastal meadows and pastures become overgrown and canopies can no longer live there. In old sand quarries, where the reeds have moved, there are more ponds suitable for reproduction and also more space, but they also tend to grow full if they are not maintained. That’s what the helpers do.

As a token of gratitude, the participants will be able to see MAFF’s winning film this year free of charge, which will be announced and screened on Saturday, September 18 at Lihula Culture House.
