Unknown are the ways of… vultures… Often our birds travel to other countries and experience various adventures, fortunately some of them come across good people… This is the case of K0R, we had a signal for from the village of Beli Izvor, Vratsa
With the increase of the temperatures, the team of BPPS carried out the regular monitoring of the Griffon Vultures in the area of Vrachanski Balkan. Minimum of six pairs were confirmed, but we believe that there will be more!
The vulture K5M was admitted at the Wildlife Rescue Centre on January 3d with decreased weight due to severe winter. After a short period of intensive rehabilitation, it successfully recovered and is now ready to be released back into the wild.
When the thick snow fells and is very romantic, high in the mountain, the roads are inaccessible, and the vultures from the adaptation aviary – very, very hungry. And then help arrives in the form of the “Bright Future for the Black Vulture” LIFE14 NAT/BG/649 project team with the aid of the young participants of the MoE’s “Student Practices” project.
