Judovi Livadi

The Judovi Livadi site is located at the foot of Bukovik, at an altitude of around 1,100-1,200 meters. The site contains bogs, soil made of large quantities of dead plant matter, collected over the years. Due to the specific conditions of the soil, there is a characteristic wildlife here, including the insect eating round-leaved sundew (Drosera rotundifolia), which is very rare on the territory of the Republic of North Macedonia.

The round-leaved sundew eats insects that are attracted by its bright red colour and the thin hairs covered in sweet and sticky mucilage. With its enzymes it dissolves the stuck insects and extracts nutrients from its body that it is missing.

The insect-eating plant is the recognizable brand of this site and of the Education Centre, and it can be found on the logo and all promotional materials in a stylized form.
