Skylark in blizzard in Belarus

This 24 January 2018 video is about a skylark in a blizzard in Belarus.

The three Nature’s Heroes chosen by Akhova Ptushak Batskaushchyny (APB—BirdLife Belarus) can be considered heroes in a more conventional sense. One climbs to dizzying heights to study the nests of raptors, with only a few old canvas straps to keep him from falling. The second confronted and defeated a horde of foreign hunters intent on killing the breeding ducks and other wildlife for which he is responsible. The third challenged a poacher and was shot and permanently disabled; but though no longer able to work as a protected area manager, has established a new career as one of Belarus’s most respected wildlife photographers, and inspires many people to become conservationists: here.
