In the May of 2024 the Hiiumaa newspaper asked us for guidelines.

A few years ago, there were no bears on Hiiumaa, the second-largest island in Estonia. However, the bear population in Estonia is thriving and growing, and this spring, at least two bears have been spotted on Hiiumaa. But the residents of Hiiumaa have little experience with bears, so the Hiiumaa newspaper asked us for guidelines on what to do if you encounter a bear. Our team member Bert shared his experiences. If you visit Hiiumaa, seeing a bear is no longer impossible!  

In the autumn of 2023, a Danish TV travel show in Estonia, bear hide starting from the 49th minute.

In the summer of 2023, a German NDR documentary Estonian Wild Forests.

In the summer of 2023, a long film about the nature of the Baltic States was made by the German-French television channel ARTE. The Natourest team was involved in two parts: from the 8th minute of the film, you can see how we, along with scientists Uudo Timm and Liisa Rennel, inventories the habitats of Flying squirrels in the Alutaguse National Park. And from the 13th minute, our Alutaguse bear hide and Brown bear forest project is shown.
