The Green Balkans Rescue Center shares its experience and knowledge with colleagues from Turkey!

Apr. 04, 2022
Last week, a delegation from the Regional Directorate of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, Istanbul, visited the Green Balkans Wildlife Rescue Center.

The visit was part of the idea of ​​our Turkish colleagues to build a Wildlife Rescue Center, to the structure of the directorate.

The Green Balkans Rescue Center was chosen as the site of the visit, as a leading unit in the field not only of rehabilitation but also of reintroduction programs on the Balkan Peninsula. During their one-day visit to us, the guests visited the various units of the Center - visitor and breeding unit, clinic, intensive care unit, incubator room, baby sector. They met and talked with representatives of our team from all areas of our work.

Particular attention was paid to our activities under the "Life for Lesser Kestrel" LIFE19 NAT/BG/001017 project, as an example of successful practice for the return of an extinct species.

During the visit, opportunities for future cooperation in the name of preserving our common natural heritage were discussed, with an emphasis on the Lesser Kestrel, as a species whose population is largely still preserved in our southern neighbour.

The Green Balkans Rescue Center team is always happy to share what it has learned over the years, as well as to be part of new initiatives aimed at preserving the biological diversity of the Balkan Peninsula.
