News International Bird Day – Together with the Falcon Society, Emitel has launched a live broadcast from a peregrine falcon nest in Dobra near Nowogard

On the occasion of the International Bird Day, which falls on 1 April, Emitel encourages you to watch a live broadcast from a peregrine falcon nest located on a tower in Dobra near Nowogard (West Pomeranian Voivodeship), which belongs to the company. Now is the best time to watch, as a pair of falcons are preparing to raise their young. At present, there are three eggs in the nest, from which young falcons should hatch after about 4 weeks. The falcons are under the care and supervision of the “Falcon” Society for Wild Animals, which has established a nest for them on a tower in Dobra as part of an EU grant. For the time being, the falcons have not accepted the target nest, but they are using a temporary one, additionally installed by the Society. A live preview is available on the Society’s website at

Emitel has made space available for a nest for a pair of falcons on its premises in Dobra, has financed cameras and is carrying out online broadcasts. We are happy to work with the “Falcon” Society and engage in such activities, because we are not indifferent to the fate of endangered bird species”, said Andrzej Kozłowski, President of the Management Board of Emitel S.A. “We have begun talks with the association with a view to using our other facilities, located all over the country, in terms of nesting this protected bird species”, he added.

Emitel also supports broadcasts from the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw, where falcons have been nesting since 1998. Here, falcons are also waiting for hatchlings, and the female has laid 4 eggs. The camera view is available at

International Bird Day, established by the ratification of the International Convention for the Protection of Birds Useful to Agriculture of 19 March 1902, has been celebrated annually since 1906. Its aim is to draw attention to the dangers faced by birds and to encourage people to get involved in their protection. Poland joined the convention in 1932.

The peregrine falcon is one of the rarest species in Poland. Peregrine falcons became extinct in our country in the 1960s as a result of pollution of the environment – and thus their food – with pesticides, mainly DDT, used in agriculture. Since the 1990s, we have been working to restore the peregrine falcon species. Currently, there are over 40 breeding pairs in Poland, and we hope that there will be more of them every year. Thanks to falcon lovers and companies supporting us, such as Emitel, you can now watch a dozen or so pairs of falcons live”, said Sławomir Sielicki, President of the “Falcon” Society for Wild Animals.
