Thanks to our good partnership with the Vrachanski Balkan Nature Park, the Birds of Prey Protection Society and the Municipality of Vratsa we celebrated the Natura 2000 Day in Vratsa together with the team of “Natura 2000 in Bulgaria- New Horizons” and “The bright future for the Black Vulture”.
On the 21st of May, we celebrated Natura 2000 Day. On this day, traditionally, the 'Life for Lesser Kestrel' LIFE19 NAT/BG/001017 project team of Green Balkans organizes various information campaigns, volunteer initiatives, and other events to promote the ecological network.
Over the past weekend, the 'Life for Lesser Kestrel' LIFE19 NAT/BG/001017 project team participated in three initiatives related to promoting its work for the return of the little falcons in our country.
We learned from local journalists surprisingly that a message was published on the Pomorie Municipality website with a provocative text and title: “Green Balkans” refused to look after the Visitor Centre in Pomorie”.
To mark the Earth Day the SiteGround hosting company, declared a Publicly responsible company of the year for 2021 by Forbes Bulgaria, developed a new campaign supporting vulture restoration in Bulgaria.
The Green Balkans' spring survey of marine birds and mammals in the Black Sea has ended. After some waiting for suitable forecast and compliance with the weather conditions, on May 10 we started the transect study from Balchik. With the alternation of almost ideal conditions and worsening of the weather, we managed to complete the transects in the planned period.
