Artificial biotope / Biotope

Artificial biotope
Artificial biotope

Many bird species living within the intensified agricultural landscape in Scandinavia are today threatened. My solution to this problem is an artificial biotope that will support the birds with food and water. By placing left over materials from the farm such as stones, logs and leaves into the module habitats for useful insects could be created. The insects will not only become an important food source for the birds but also help the farmers with pollination and pest control on their farm. The lid of the module is designed to collect rainwater to provide the birds with an important water source that today is lacking within the landscape.
