Even if they are late sometimes, storks always come back

SOS Children's Villages Lekenik and the Lekenik Municipality celebrated the return of spring and storks with the traditional environmental-tourist event “Let’s Welcome the Storks”.

 This year we welcomed the storks several days after the calendar beginning of spring. The delay was caused by the flooding that hit the Turopolje region, forcing all the Municipality staff and many citizens to mobilize all their resources in fighting the elements.
To the relief and joy of all Lekenik residents, the water level went down, letting everyone focus on the return of the storks, the mascots of the Lekenik Municipality.

Children from the SOS Children's Village and Lekenik Kindergarten recited poems, and little scientists from the Mladost Primary School instructed everyone in the audience about this beautiful birds, their habitat and eating habits.

We learned that storks eat frogs, that mama and papa stork raise their young together and that they remain paired up for the rest of their lives, that Poland is the largest stork habitat in Europe and other valuable science facts.

Lekenik mayor Mr. Ivica Perović greeted everyone, singling out many children in the audience, and he wished all the participants joy for the upcoming Easter holidays.
