Flight at the foot of Vitosha

We are happy to announce that the release of the twenty birds – kestrels, owls and an Eagle-owl was attended by numerous media representatives. Volunteers of Green Balkans Federation and many sponsors of the Wildlife Rescue Centre were also among the spectators of the release.

Ms. Evdokia Maneva, Deputy-Minister of Environment and Waters was the official guest who personally set the Eagle-owl free. Its faith is very interesting as it came in the Rescue Centre in the beginning of June with a fractured leg and underwent a serious surgery.

We are grateful to all who answered our invitation joining us for the event.

We hope that the birds will quickly adapt to their new surrounding and continue to live in a Vitosha Nature Park as we know it at present.
