About the Project

Тhe Bright Future for Black Vulture LIFE14 NAT/BG/649 Project unites the efforts of five main partners from four European countries – Green Balkans – Stara Zagora and the Fund for Wild Flora and Fauna (FWFF) from Bulgaria, the Vulture Conservation Foundation (VCF) from the Netherlands, Junta de Extremadura from Spain and Euronatur from Germany.
It provides for the restoration of Black Vulture in Bulgaria through import and release of birds from Spain, improving the nesting conditions and food source, supporting local livestock breeders, limiting threats and developing national capacities.
