Dec. 02, 2021
The Imperial Eagle, the Sandwich Tern, the Pygmy Cormorant and the other representatives of "The Living Exhibition" were presented to the Steering Committee of the "Environmental Awareness and Behavior to Stop Pollution in Significant Wetlands of the Black Sea Basin" project.

The highlight of the visit of the expert group in PlanetUm, Burgas, where the exhibition is currently located, was the Lesser Kestrel. The Green Balkans "Life for Lesser Kestrel" LIFE19 NAT/BG/001017 project team told the guests from Greece and Turkey about our work to restore the species in Bulgaria. The guests learned curious details about the species, as well as that, really close to them, on the territory of Lukoil Neftochim Burgas is one of the only three colonies of birds in our country.

"The Living Exhibition" is dedicated to the International Green Belt Initiative, which promotes efforts to protect rare birds inhabiting the cross-border areas of the three neighbouring Balkan countries - Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey. Visitors will have the opportunity to get acquainted with life-size models and colouring of rare and protected bird species such as the Imperial Eagle, the Black Vulture, the Red-breasted Goose and the Common Tern. An information board tells interesting facts about the rare birds and their habitats.
