Days ago, our team from project "LIFE for Lesser Kestrel" LIFE19 NAT/BG/001017 received from zoo Sofia - five hatched kestrels in total within the zoo.
The birds will be included in the Green Balkans activities for supporting the species in our county, for the purpose they were examined, weighed and dewormed by the vets from the Rescue center for wild animals!
The project team tagged the young birds with two bird rings - a colored one and a metal one, as in this way we have ensured their tracking, at least for when they are in the region of the adaptive aviary from where they will be released!
It became already a tradition for project "LIFE for Lesser Kestrel" LIFE19 NAT/BG/001017 of the Green Balkans to be funded by LIFE program of the EU to include in their activities for supporting the species in Bulgaria different zoos. At the moment we receive donations from several zoos in Czech Republic - Prague, Hodonin, Zlin and one from Bulgaria - zoo Sofia!
We believe, that our partner relationships will continue forward with them and we hope that in the future there will be joining us other zoos.
