Guests of the Wildlife Rehabilitation and Breeding Centre

In the middle of June, the Wildlife Rehabilitation and Breeding Centre was visited by our friends from Greece - Anna Kazaku and Maria Ganoti.

The visit was important for future activities that are part of the 'New Hope for the Egyptian Vulture' project. The aim was their introduction to the Green Balkans' Centre, especially the breeding and rehabilitation parts. Making the contact with Anna, representing Attica Zoological Park, and Maria, rehabiliator in Anima (a Rescue Centre in Athens), is of major importance in creating a network in the Balkans for the Egyptian Vulture.

Their knowledge and experience can be used in order to increase the population of the captive pairs Egyptian Vultures, there is even one such bird in the Athens Zoo at the moment. It is a wild bird from Greece, having been treated in the Anima Centre, and it's a potential partner for a pair in the zoo. The second day of the ladies' visit in Bulgaria was dedicated to the Green Balkans' field work.

They visited the area of the adaptation aviaries of the 'Saker Falcon Reintroduction in Bulgaria' project, as well as the feeding spot and aviary for the 'Bright Future for the Black Vulture' project LIFE14NATBG649. We believe this is just the beginning of a long and fruitfull cooperation in the name of saving the Egyptian Vultures in the Balkans.
