Visiting the village of Preslaven

At the invitation of “Dimitar Naumov” Community Center in the village of Preslaven we marked the end of the summer vacation and the beginning of the new school year with a joint initiative.

We hiked to the nearby forest and there, in the midst of nature we stepped into an unknown world - the world of wild animals. The children learned why bats were useful, what species of vultures we had in Bulgaria and which ones we can see today; they also learned a bit about some types of falcons: Saker falcon and Lesser kestrel. They found out that the Red-breasted geese, a globally threatened species, prefer to spend the winter in our latitudes, also how our colleagues from the Wildlife Rehabilitation and Breeding Centre help wild animals heal and work for the return of the extinct birds from Bulgaria, what are the NATURA 2000 areas and about the species protected by their directives.

Happy new school year, children! Have thirst for knowledge!

We thank Mrs. Stoyka Genova for the invitation!
