Another field activity the Green Balkans completed. This time we were in the area of ​​Provadia. There, near the village of Partizani, where a site for artificial feeding of Egyptian vultures was built, we installed video surveillance cameras with which our field team can monitor the visitors of the site from a distance.

The installation of the facility with the cameras turned out to be quite difficult, given the remoteness of the site from any settlement. With joint efforts and the help of volunteers, however, we managed to cope!

At the same time, we moved the feeding ground to a hill far from the main rock, hoping to prevent food from being invaded by terrestrial predators - foxes, jackals, stray dogs. For this purpose, we installed a metal rope, which will serve the field workers to reach the place where they will place the food without hindrance.
On the way back, the team and volunteers fed another pair of Egyptian vultures, which we are taking care of in the area as part of our activities under the 'Egyptian Vulture New LIFE' project.

Once again, we would like to express our gratitude to the students from the Trakia University, participants in the 'Student Internships - Phase 2' project of the Ministry of Education and Science, funded by the Operational Program 'Science and Education for Smart Growth', co-financed by the European Social Fund. 

Let's face this next challenge for our team!

Тhe 'Conservation of the Egyptian Vulture in the Balkans' project activity is funded by the Municipality of Prague and the Prague Zoo.
