Because the epidemic measures allow it, we organized our first presentation on 15 April after half a year absence.

We were guests in “Radost” №12 Kindergarten in Pernik thanks to the invitation of Mrs. Uzunova.

Teachers and children from “Pchelichka” group welcomed us joyfully, because they knew we will be talking about bats and dolphins. Interesting photos and stories about the wild animals made the young children sincerely happy. We told them about the secret life of the bats and some of the children shared their own experiences with them while others – their dream of seeing dolphins in the sea.

In the end all children received a book about the Adventures of Darki the Bat so that they could remember our meeting and what we learned together during this day.

Our live meeting could not find a replacement with anything else and this is why we hope to continue to organize more educational initiatives like this one together.

Natura 2000
Natura 2000 is the largest coordinated network for nature conservation. More than 30% of the territory of Bulgaria falls within the scope of the network - 120 areas for the protection of wild birds and 234 areas for the protection of natural habitats.

Bats
33 from the 35 species of bats in Europe can be found in Bulgaria. They are of key importance for ecosystems. All bat species are protected by the Biodiversity Act, and the forest and underground habitats of the species are protected within the Natura 2000 ecological network.

Cetaceans
There are 3 species of cetaceans in the Black Sea - Bottlenose Dolphin, Short-beaked Common Dolphin and Harbour Porpoise, endemic to our sea. Persecuted in the past, not much is known today about the state of the populations of the three species. The Bottlenose Dolphin and the Harbour Porpoise are subject to protection by the Natura 2000 ecological network and special marine protected areas are declared for their protection.
