“In 2019, the Czech Agriculture Ministry gave farmers the green light for applications of the highly toxic poison against common voles. We warned that the application of this poison on the ground is very dangerous for birds, because same birds can eat it and others will be poisoned by eating poisoned voles. With a huge public support, we made the ministry to reverse the decision and stop poison applications. This was the moment, when I felt that the power of our organisation together with public is really big and that we can really protect birds and other animals when they are in trouble. And that makes me happy.”
