The "CZAPLON" ornithological club currently consists of about 50 persons interested in the bird area of European importance, the fishponds and reservoirs in Upper Vistula Valley in southern Poland, between Skoczow and Zator. We carry regular observations and monitor the populations of breeding and non-breeding birds. In our group, we cooperate with scientific bodies: Ornithological Station of Institute of Ecology PAN in Gdańsk, Małopolskie Ornithological Society in Kraków and Department of Avian Ecology of Wrocław University. We also work in the conservation field as a local group of   Polish Society for the Protection of the Birds (OTOP). What is more our group also cooperates with other societies and institutions protecting nature in South Poland.

By the way: "czaplon" in old Polish means "Little Egret".
