Professor Stoyan Lazarov, Bulgarian Biodiversity Foundation, Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds, For the Earth, Greenpeace - Bulgaria, BALKANI Wildlife Society - NGO and Gabrovo Municipality took part along with Bulgarian land art artists.
An area in Castilla y León, Spain, became a death trap for vultures over the past couple of days. Since yesterday, when locals came across the gruesome scene, nearly 100 vultures were discovered either dead or dying in the field. Based on the circumstances, a mass poisoning incident is the likely cause behind this tragic event, but investigations are ongoing.
With great pleasure the team of Green Balkans’ Wildlife Rescue and Breeding Center responded to the invitation of the “Slunchev luch” Private Elementary Eco School in Plovdiv and visited yesterday the sunny kids from the eco school who turned to be big vultures’ fans and who chose the topic of our lecture.
The Green Balkans team will celebrate one of the most important nature conservation dates in the country with a tour. It will be in partnership with organisations and museums in various parts of the country.
