Green Balkans at the Resort, Mineral Water and the Balkan Mountains Festival - Varshets 2019

12.08.2019
Over the last weekend, the Green Balkans team presented the activities of the “NATURA 2000 in Bulgaria - NEW HORIZONS” project at the national fair titled “Let's Show the Bulgarian” which is part of the program of the Resort, Mineral Water and the Balkan Mountains Festival - Varshets 2019.

The event is organized by the Varshets municipality, the Ministry of Agriculture and Food, the Bulgarian Republic Cinologic League and the Bulgarian Cinologic Club for Bulgarian Shepherd dog. For the second consecutive year exhibitors from around the country had the opportunity to engage.

Located on the northern slopes of the Balkan Mountains, Varshets is famous for its mineral water. The festival venue was located just a few minutes away from the city center, at Ivanchova meadow.

Within two days the team had the opportunity to introduce the guests of the city and the local residents with the ecological network NATURA 2000, as well as interesting facts about some of the most popular wild representatives of the Bulgarian fauna. We talked about Cetacean mammals in the Black Sea - the methods of their examination and what are the new ways to preserve them, what is the symbol of the Bulgarian nature conservation and why did it disappear, are bats frightening and where to expect the upcoming Bat Night etc.
