Celebrating the importance of the biodiversity in Tsaratsovo village

At “Dyado Ivan Arabadziyata” Primary School just a day before the Earth Day, we talked about the importance of biodiversity in nature and its conservation.
Thanks to the invitation made by Mrs Petya Bojnova and the management of the school, students from 1st to 4th grade had the opportunity to get closer and learn more about the most life rich habitats – wetlands and how many different kinds of waterfowl  are living there. “NATURA 2000 in Bulgaria – New Horizons” project team combined information about two of the most important ecological dates – the World Wetlands Day and the Earth Day. We answered questions such as what are the important world wetlands in our country and what species live in them, why they are significant for conservation and what are the benefits for us, people.
Special attention was paid to the long distance traveler Brent – the Red-breasted Goose and its story which children can read from our book in their spare time. Information materials about wetlands and their inhabitants were given to the management of the school.
We would like to thank for the invitation and hope to see each other again!
