Black storks (Sigonia nigra) A few who live in the jungles of Poland. Even in the early 19th and 20th centuries, there were very few black storks in Poland. In 1966, the total number was estimated at 500-530 breeding pairs. In the years 1981-1982, 800-900 pairs were counted. Thanks to conservation, the efforts of foresters, scientists and nature lovers have saved suitable nesting conditions and created for them.
Currently, there are an estimated 1400-1600 pairs of black storks in Poland. Up to 90 percent of the population lives in the lowlands and highlands, and the rest in the Carpathians and Sudetes. The area of Poland is at the center of the geographical range of this species in Europe, with about 25% of them nesting in the country. Its population within the borders of the European Union.

The online exchange from the nest of black storks is a joint project Regional Directorate of State Forests in Indź and the Faculty of Biological and Environmental Protection of źdŁó University. The project has two stages – the young departure from the arrival of the adult stork pair from the first nest, and the second observation of the further fate of the storks thanks to the GPS transmitters.
