Students from the Biology club at the ‘Romen Rolan’ vocational school visited the Green Balkans Rescue Center

16.05.2019
Yesterday we welcomed 40 students from the ‘Romen Rolan’ vocational school, Stara Zagora, at the Green Balkans Wildlife Rehabilitation and Breeding Center.

The children from 9th and 10th grades were very interested to learn more about wildlife and protecting it. We had prepared a short presentation about the Rescue Center and the work we do as well as interesting stories about patients at the Center. We talked with them about the human impact on nature and the problems it poses.

The students surprised us with the many facts they already knew about rare and protected species in our country. And we told them more about the species we work with, like the bearded vulture, the black vulture, the lesser kestrel, the saker falcon and other.

Since their visit was in May – month of the Natura 2000, we also told them more about the Natura 2000 network of protected areas. We talked about the two directives – the Birds and The Habitats Directives, that include rare plant and animal species and their habitats, and about their incorporation in Bulgarian legislation. We talked about the Natura 2000 network in our country and the benefits it offers.
 
We’d like to say a big thank you to the young environmentalists and their teacher, Ms Tanya Dacheva, for their enthusiasm!

The event is part of the Green Balkans National Campaign celebrating the Natura 2000 Day. Our organization is celebrating the Natura 2000 Day with a series of events throughout May – Month of the Natura 2000.
