Welcome on the 20th of March 2021 at 11:00 am at the Natural History Museum – Plovdiv, where “The live exhibition” of Green Balkans will be opened.
It presents real size dummies and coloring of rare and protected species of birds, encountered within the scope of The Green Belt, on the territories of Bulgaria, Greece, and Turkey.
Visitors will have the opportunity to meet the Pygmy Cormorant, Eastern imperial eagle, Cinereus vulture, Red-breasted Goose, and the Sandwich tern. The Lesser Kestrel takes a central place at the exhibition. It is a rare species, which until recently has been considered extinct as a nesting one in Bulgaria.
The species was recovered in Bulgaria thanks to the efforts of Green Balkans who currently continue to work for its support and preservation under the “LIFE for Lesser Kestrel” LIFE19NAT/BG/001017 project, funded by the LIFE program of the EU, whose activities the team of the organization will introduce to the people of Plovdiv during the event!
The event is organized to mark two very important days for environmental protection – World Forest Day, 21st March, and The World Water Day, 22nd  March.
On the celebration days (20 and 21.03 ) all children up to 7 years old can visit the Museum exhibition for free and will also receive an attractive gift – a real shark tooth.
The children will also get the opportunity to participate in a studio for coloring Lesser kestrels using as a model realistic dummies of a male and female bird provided by Green Balkans. The dummies from the exhibition will remain at the museum until 21.04.2021 and can be seen as part of the Exhibition.
