This is a 29 April 2016 video from Naturalis museum in Leiden, the Netherlands. It shows pieces of woolly mammoth fur and excrement arriving in the collection, all the way from the permafrost in Siberia.
Some Dutch spoonbill colonies are much smaller.
And in 2015, again three spoonbill couples nested there.
Will they do that again this year?

Training for Syrian refugee teachers
21 January 2016
ICLON and Dutch Academic Services initiate a training for Syrian teachers in the Netherlands about the use of mobile teaching.
Taking into account recent developments in Syria and the Middle East it can be expected that there will be a huge need for education among Syrian refugees. That need can only be addressed by ‘out of the box’ methods: that is using flexible online (or blended) learning programmes.
While understanding this situation ICLON and Dutch Academic Services initiate a training course for professionals with an educational background: The Mobile Educator.
The training is offered free of charge. The trainers work on a voluntary basis and funds are being raised for additional costs for transport and lunch.
The training starts on 16 February.
