The birds were transported by the team of project “Egyptian Vulture New Life” (LIFE16 NAT/BG/000874) and are donated by the Prague Zoo, Czech and Schönbrunn Zoo, Austria.

The two birds are adults, a pair with confirmed breeding abilities, long-time inhabitants of the Prague zoo. From now on, the birds will live in the aviaries of the Wildlife rehabilitation and breeding center and their offspring will fly free in the sky.

Our team also transported one juvenile Egyptian vulture, hatched in Schönbrunn zoo, Vienna. It will remain in the center for one month and after that will be transferred to an adaptation aviary in Eastern Rhodope. There, along with other birds from his species, he will spend a few months and then will be released by the soft release method.

We also transported a juvenile Egyptian vulture, hatched last year in Sofia zoo. The bird was accommodated in Prague zoo until they find a new partner for her and then the pair will be transported to her new home – some of the European zoos.

And thus, the activities of the team of the Wildlife rehabilitation and breeding center “Egyptian Vulture New Life” (LIFE16 NAT/BG/000874) continue. We hope that soon we will have our first eggs and hatched chicks. But until then we will take care of the new inhabitants of the Center and we will do our best for their comfort.
