Two male Bearded vultures arrived to the Green Balkans’ Wildlife rehabilitation and breeding center a few days ago

05.08.2019
The birds from the rare species hatched this year in the aviaries of the Czech zoo Liberec and the Austrian center EULEN- UND GREIFVOGELSTATION Haringsee.
 
After a short examination and disinfestion in the clinic of the Wildlife rehabilitation and breeding center the birds were accommodated in the aviaries. Two ladies from the same species have been waiting there for them for two years – one of them hatched in Switzerland and the other one in the Czech Republic.

The birds are part of the VCF’s network and are sent to us with a mission! They are supposed to make pairs and their offspring to support the return of the species in Europe.
 
We would like to remind you that there has been a pair of Bearded vultures in the Center for ten years now.

Each year their offspring, released in the sky above Spain and France, support the reintroduction of the species.

The accommodation of rare species in the Green Balkans’ Wildlife rehabilitation center is a great recognition for our team. A recognition we have proved we deserve throughout the years. And the experience gained will be useful to us in the future, when we hope that all the efforts of our partners from the VCF will be focused on the reintroduction of the species in Bulgaria.

We would like to thank Alex Llopis and Hans Frey for their trust and also to Antonin Vaidl for his cooperation for the transportation of the birds to the Center.

The information activities for the Bearded vultures in the Wildlife rehabilitation and breeding center are supported by project:
