International meeting on the conservation of Imperial Eagle08.09.2008
The meeting, held in the town of Topolovgrad, was organized by the Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds, the Union for Reconstruction and Development, and the Hungarian Society for Nature Conservation. The event involved more than 70 representatives of 12 countries, including Russia, Ukraine, Hungary, Slovakia, Serbia, Turkey, Greece, Romania, etc.
During the meeting the participants discussed important issues related to the conservation of Imperial Eagle, planned future common activities to improve the state of the population, presented important and interesting information on the status of the species in the different countries, as well as new data on its ecology and biology.
Green Balkans’ team made three presentations illustrating our work for the conservation of Imperial Eagle in the country. This included results of the tracking of Imperial Eagles tagged by Green Balkans with radio and GPS transmitters – a pilot activity for Bulgaria, as well as information about the Imperial Eagles that had undergone medical treatment and rehabilitation at the Wildlife Rescue Center. In addition, our representatives presented a short video clip showing attractive pictures of Imperial Eagles and illustrating Green Balkans’ work and efforts for the protection of this species.
The next meeting of the Working Group for the conservation of the Imperial Eagle will be held in 2013 in Slovakia.
Hopefully, the participants will report significant progress in the conservation of the species as well as improvement of the population status.
