Welcome to lutreola.eu
The Lutreola foundation is a species conservation organization started in 1992. The main focus of our activities over the years has been the conservation of the European mink (Mustela lutreola) with an objective of population restoration on the Estonian islands, namely Hiiumaa and Saaremaa. We also work on the international level with various different organizations ranging from theWAZA to different zoos and other conservation-oriented bodies around the world.
The aim of this website is to reflect the activities of our foundation on the Internet, but also to serve as a gateway of information related to the conservation of the European mink. We launched our new site in January 2013. The history before 2011 can be seen on our old site.
Recently the activities of the Lutreola foundation have been expanding in range, increasingly addressing several other species and conservation areas. These are also reflected in this site.
This website has been created with support from the Environmental Investement Centre of Estonia.
