The project “Life for Lesser Kestrel” LIFE19 NAT/BG/001017 implemented by Green Balkans and funded by Programme LIFE of EU, was again a guest of the festival.

Sep. 11, 2023
This time the festival was held in Harmanli under the vibrant name “Harman”.

Our team presented the work of Green Balkans about the return of the species to our country and the subsequent support of its fragile population. Part of our guests were the Common Buzzard Misho, the Harris's Hawk Harry and the Common Kestrel Vladko – representatives of the initiative of Wild life retribution and breeding centre Green Balkans – “The wounded wild nature”.

We also, presented the “Living Exhibition”, featuring protected and endangered species, which find their home in the territory of the European Green Belt – former border areas from the time of the "Iron Curtain". Accentuating along with the Eastern Imperial Eagle, the Saker Falcon, the Red-Breasted Goose, the Cinereous Vulture and others was also the Lesser Kestrel. The exhibition's participation in the festival is also in the context of the upcoming very soon celebration of the "European Green Belt" Day, which the team from Green Balkans marked traditionally.

We thank the organizers from the Association "Business for Harmanli" Harmanli Municipality, Association “AGORA” and the Historical Museum – Harmanli for the invitation and for making us part of the cultural life of Sakar again – the place where the Lesser Kestrel returned in our country for the first time in decades of absence.
