Visiting the Rescue Center

Visiting the Rescue Center

05.10.2014
This autumn, 45 children from Karlovo were the first visitors to Green Balkans’ Wildlife Rescue Centre.
 
They got acquainted with our work and demonstrated great knowledge of the green alternatives and the importance of their application in the everyday life.
The first part of the visit of our new friends took place in the guest room of the Centre. There, the children watched recordings of the most interesting moments of our work, such as hatching and rearing of Lesser Kestrels, Saker Falcons, as well as the first Griffon Vulture chick - Parvolet.
Their visit coincided with the upcoming Bat Night in Stara Zagora, whose organizer - Elena Tilova from Green Balkans, introduced the guests to the amazing world of these winged mammals.
Then, the young nature lovers got closely acquainted with the inhabitants of the visitor’s area of the Rescue Center. Eagles, owls, vultures ... animals with disabilities, whose last chance for life is the Rescue Center.
When parting, the children decided to adopt the one-eyed Eagle Owl, residing in the visitor’s area. Thus, they demonstrated how concerned they were about the welfare of wild animals, leaving the Rescue Center with a keepsake – an Adoptive Parents’ Honorary Diploma. They will take it home, in Karlovo, as evidence of the nature conservation cause they already carry in their hearts.
This activity is part of “People FOR Nature – Green Society in Action” project, funded by the Swiss Confederation, through the Civil Society Development Fund.
