Snowchange Fisher Karoliina Lehtimäki checks the fish traps in June 2022.

Summer is here. First fish shipments from Snowchange to Europe have succeeded and we look forwards the developments of the fishery. At home large fish traps are yielding bream, ide and pikeperch. This month Snowchange and the Endangered Landscapes Programme partner on Koitajoki and Evenki Atlas receives the first videos. Lake Onkamo and catchment joins the Landscape Rewilding Programme.

Fisheries are in full swing and we are delivering our “Rewilding Fish” to European markets to support the local communities and rewilding efforts in North Karelia and explore new mechanisms to great high quality fish to the markets. Noora Huusari coordinates this action.

The Endangered Landscapes Programme and Snowchange have formed a partnership regarding Koitajoki. We will come back to this issue later in the year.

Bountiful catch.

Evenki Atlas has been boosted with new oral history videos, accessible here.

Lastly the restoration of lake Onkamo in North Karelia is in a transformation. After almost 15 years of leadership from Tuovi Vaaranta which succeeded to rewild and restore most of the Onkamo basin, the Landscape Rewilding Programme assumes now the continuation of this work. This adds a large, historically important lake system to the rewilding portfolio in North Karelia. We thank Tuovi and look forwards to the collaborations.
