we are urgently looking for 1000 euro for the transportation of one male Black Vulture, donated to us by the Dutch zoo, Ouwehands Dierenpark Rhenen

The bird is going to join the species breeding program, carried out in the Green Balkans’ Wildlife Rehabilitation and Breeding Centre in Stara Zagora.

He is going to replace the male bird we have, that unfortunately has not been able to produce offspring, despite the female’s efforts. The female vulture has demonstrated courtship behavior and has been trying to produce vulture chicks for the reintroduction program. Unfortunately, our male bird has been unable to copulate due to its fractured wing and hasn’t been showing any interest in the eager female. The Dutch zoo donation is a chance for us to be able to successfully breed Black Vultures for the first time in decades in our country and even to reintroduce this wildlife species back in Bulgaria.

You can be part of the Black Vulture reintroduction in Bulgaria!
