The breeding activity of the Saker falcons at the Green Balkans Rescue Center for 2022 has ended

These days the last Saker falcons hatched at the Rescue Center for this year were redirected for release to the adaptive aviaries in nature.

Thus, a total of 25 hatchlings will fly in the sky this year.

We remind you that this is one of the activities of the Green Balkans under the "Reintroduction of the Saker falcon in Bulgaria" project, as part of the measures to support the wild population of the species in our country. We are pleased to note that this year interns from Italy and Hungary, part of our international training program, joined our fieldwork.

Now, in front of our field team, there are many interesting, but also very busy days of fieldwork.

All 25 falcons must be fed daily, and those that already fly freely in nature - to be monitored and carefully recorded. And so, until the last little one leaves the releasing site, which usually happens at the end of July.

The "Reintroduction of the Saker Falcon in Bulgaria" project is funded by the Mohamed Bin Zayed Raptor Conservation Fund and Armeec Insurance JSC .
