Volunteers for the Saker falcons!

Volunteers for the Saker falcons!

19.05.2020
A total of 6 artificial nests for Saker falcons were set up so far within the 'Reintroduction of the Saker Falcon in Bulgaria' project by its team.

The nests were placed high in the trees' branches, in the area of ​​the adaptation aviaries for releasing young falcons hatched at the Centre, to attract couples of the species, looking for a place for their future home.

Students from the Trakia University in Stara Zagora participated in the installation of the nests as volunteers.

The young people became actively involved, helping the Green Balkans team, while at the same time had the opportunity to learn more about the features and requirements of the species in nature. We also told them about the threats to the survival of this rare falcon, as well as the measures that the conservation community in Bulgaria is taking for its survival in our country.

The 'Reintroduction of the Saker Falcon in Bulgaria' project is financed by Mohamed Bin Zayed Raptor Conservation Fund and  Armeec JSC.
