On a Birthday of Hills Beer


We were invited to the fifth birthday party of Hills brewery near Perushtitsa on Sunday afternoon.

It was important for the Green Balkans team to introduce to as many visitors as possible protected species in Bulgaria and Natura 2000 protected area network, that is why we brought the models of the Black and Griffon vulture, the tern, the dolphin and the red-breasted goose. In addition, there was bats exhibition and information about cetaceans. We had mini- quizzes with large-scale puzzles, thanks to the project "Natura 2000 in Bulgaria - New Horizons" and "Bright Future for the Black Vulture" for each participant was an award -information materials - leaflets and stickers.

There were other stalls  and art workshops at the events, so all visitors enjoyed good beer, food and learned interesting facts about protected species.

We would like to thank to our volunteers from Beglika camp, who put into practice their volunteering skills into this event.
