From December 3 Green Balkans presents an interactive exhibition at the Pomorie Lake Visitor Cente addressing the problem of waste pollution in the Black Sea, as well as in wetlands, especially in Pomorie Lake. Research conducted in 2020 in this wetland confirms the general trend that the largest share of waste is artificial polymeric materials.

The exhibition includes two 3D models of a common dolphin, showing both the beauty of these graceful mammals and the global problem of pollution and ingestion of marine litter.

The installation is part of the project "Environmental awareness and behavior to stop pollution in significant wetlands of the Black Sea basin" BioLearn BSB142, which aims through educational, informational and training activities to address the problem of pollution. The focus is on key wetlands along the coast of Turkey, Greece, Georgia, Ukraine and last but not least Bulgaria. Located on migratory roads or wintering grounds for rare and protected waterfowl, these water bodies are key to bird conservation. At the same time, these places are often threatened by pollution of various types as a result of human activity.



Project BSB142 BioLearn is funded by the Joint Operational Program "Black Sea Basin 2014-2020" co-financed by the EU through the European Neighborhood Instrument and the participating countries: Armenia, Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Moldova, Romania, Turkey and Ukraine.
