The team of the project "Life for lesser kestrel" LIFE19 NAT/BG/001017 participated in two meetings for experience exchange - in Greece and in Hungary

Feb. 14, 2023
At the end of January, the team of project "Life for lesser kestrel" LIFE19 NAT/BG/001017 visited Greece. It was in the framework of a work meeting involving representatives of various wildlife rescue centres.

During the conversations with the colleagues, among the topics directly related to the work meeting, we also discussed the possibility of admitting lesser kestrels in the Green Balkans Wildlife Rehabilitation and Breeding Centre. These would be birds which have undergone treatment in rescue centres in Greece, but unfortunately have remained permanently disabled.

We remind you that as part of project "Life for lesser kestrel" LIFE19 NAT/BG/001017, implemented by Green Balkans and financed by the LIFE programme of the EU, pairs of lesser kestrels are breeding in the Centre. The goal is to release their offspring into the wild in Bulgaria. The breeding group must be constantly replenished with new individuals so that more pairs can be formed, which also have ''fresh'' blood.

The second work meeting was within the framework of the closing conference of the "PannonEagle" LIFE project, which took place in Hungary. The purpose of our visit there was to exchange experience with our colleagues. Various topics related to the work on the two LIFE projects were discussed, regarding both fieldwork and administrative tasks.
