Celebrating the Day of the Wildlife Rescue Centre and the beginning of a new project implemented by Green Balkans

05.11.2013
Therefore, on November 1st, at 10:30 am, an event called “Green Society in Action” took place in the grounds of the Wildlife Rescue Center. During this event we traditionally present the most recent activities implemented by the Wildlife Rescue Centre. This year, we acquainted the friends of the green idea with the project "People FOR Nature - Green Society in Action", implemented by "Green Balkans - Stara Zagora" NGO with the financial support of the Swiss Confederation.

The project is aimed entirely at establishing conservation-oriented and environmentally friendly behavior of young people. This is an activity of highest priority for us, crucial not only for the future of the Bulgarian nation, but also the future of the world.

Mr. Gerasim Gerasimov, representing the Embassy of Switzerland, attended the event and extended special greetings to the team of the Wildlife Rescue Centre on behalf of Her Excellency Regina Escher, Swiss Ambassador to Bulgaria.

During the event we also acknowledged the support of the Municipality of Stara Zagora, whose goodwill made possible the reconstruction of the road to the Wildlife Rescue Centre. This will facilitate the access of more than 1,500 children and students from all over the country, who visit the Rescue Center on an annual basis. This is a gesture that corresponds to the main idea of the project - environmental education.

Also, we acquainted our guests with other projects falling within the focus of activity of the Wildlife Rescue Center, such as the projects for the recovery of the Lesser Kestrel, Griffon Vulture, and Saker Falcon.

After the official part, assisted by the youngest participants in the event, we released a Common Buzzard that had undergone successful medical treatment at the Rescue Center.
