Our correspondent from Kresna announces:
„The vulture Margarete, named in honor of Margarette Rothmair – Friends of Vienna zoo, Austria, is alive and in good health and feeds on the feeding site in Rakitna, kept by FWFF”.
An announcement from our correspondents from Sliven and Kotel:
One of the five juvenile Griffon vultures hatched this year in Kotel visits the feeding site in Sliven! This is a huge event for us, because after they fletch, we don’t always know what happens with the young birds. The fact that it visits the feeding site which is 15 kilometers away from Sliven is a sign that the bird already flies around and manages to find food!
Once again we will be able to track the flight of a Griffon vulture, tagged with satellite transmitter, thanks to donators20.09.2016
Please sign the petition initated by people interested in the conservation of Pomorie Lake and suppported by Green Balkans.
Dear friends, as stated a few days ago, the teams of Green Balkans, the Wild Flora and Fauna Fund and BPPS may praise ourselves that, after 15 years of hard work we can consider that Griffon Vulture has been restored in the Balkan Montains of Bulgaria and Kresna (Pirin). We can say this as there are 25 nesting pairs and 11 young reared in the three target areas – Vrachanski Balkan, Kotel (Sliven), and Kresna (Pirin). For this international event our vultures received the names of 10 distinguished naturalists from all over Europe, with a great contribution to vulture protection. Who are they?
