Bee Breeders have selected the winners for the Pape Bird Observation Tower competition, which saw participants submitting designs for a new bird observation station located in the Nica and Rucava Municipalities in the South Western region of Latvia. The competition is the first in a series organized by Bee Breeders in collaboration with Pasaules Dabas Fonds, Latvia's leading nature conservation fund. The competition asked for proposals for a tower that would replace a previous tower that was struck by lightening. The winning schemes were selected based on their environmental sensitivity to the unique and varied parklands surrounding the scheme, their functionality, and their potential to become a landmark. The tower will be used primarily to record annual migratory habits of birds, but will also allow visitors to the park the opportunity to engage with the park and its resources.
