Presentation of the Rescue Centre at the Regional Natural History Museum of Plovdiv

Last week a team of the Wildlife and Breeding Rescue Centre and some volunteers gave a presentation about its activities and mission. Some of our stationary inhabitants came to help – Misho the Common Buzzard, Chara the Tawny Owl, Vladko the Kestrel and Blaga the Little Owl.

With their help, we told the children, their parents, and the other visitors how to keep our beautiful nature intact, how to protect wildlife diversity and help the animals at risk. The children learned the stories of our stationary inhabitants, how they came into the Rescue Centre and why are we unable to release them into the wild. We told them about some of the extinct Bulgarian species, such as the Bearded and Egyptian Vutures, Saker Falcon, Lesser Kestrel, as well as our breeding programs which are aimed at bringing them back.

A lot of our volunteers joined us after similar informative events. In most of the cases, they are Veterinary, Biology or Ecology students. Volunteering at the center gives them great opportunities to get to know the different causes of the injured animals and to show all of the knowledge they have gathered in the classroom, always under the stick eyes of our veterinarians.

Everyone who is interested in working with wild animals and would like to help us is welcomed at the Wildlife and Breeding Rescue Centre!
