“Sinite Kamani” Nature Park is the new home of our new Griffon Vultures

Two vultures were donated by the Netherlands’zoo DierenPark Amersfoort and one by Dierenrijk. They arrived in Bulgaria on 27th of November 2021. The vultures were quarantined at Wildlife rehabilitation and breeding centre - Green Balkans. Now vultures are placed in their temporary home in the aviary at “Sinite Kamani" National Park. When they get used to the surrounding environment, they will be relieved. In order to be able to track them and to know where they are, DierenPark Amersfoort has donated two transmitters which will be placed on the Griffon Vultures. Such donation is extremely important for us because it will allow us to acquire knowledge concerning Griffon Vultures' behaviour. Tracking the vultures could prevent the poisoning of an entire colony.  

Zoos in the Netherlands are part of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EASZA). EASZA actively supports reintroducing rare species programs.

We would like to express our gratitude to DierenPark Amersfoort and Dierenrijk Zoo. We are honoured that the Dutch public trusts us and supports our activities.
