More new occupants of the Wildlife Rehabilitation and Breeding Centre on Christmas

Dec. 29, 2020
In a few days, the number of birds inhabiting the aviaries of the Green Balkans Wildlife Rescue Centre has increased with 11 more.

They are a donation from our friends from the International Center for Birds of Prey. Interestingly, all 11 birds are hatched at the Center, and the Lesser Kestrel is a generation of our birds donated two years ago within the 'Restoration of the Lesser Kestrel' project, LIFE11 NAT/BG/360.

During their trip, our team did not miss the opportunity to visit similar to the Green Balkans Rescue Center zoos and centers, where we exchanged valuable experience and knowledge in the field of breeding and growing of wild animals, and the reintroduction of extinct species.
A total of 7 destinations were visited, including Serbia Belgrade Zoo, Serbia Palich Zoo, Hungary Bőszénfa Deer Farm, Hungary Veresegyház Bear Farm, Hungary Budakeszi Wildlife Park, Hungary Lake Tisza Ökocentrum, Hungary Hortobágy Bird Hospital Foundation.

Some of the donated birds, such as Griffon vultures, after being quarantined at the Wildlife Rehabilitation and Breeding Centre, will be released into the nature of Bulgaria within the 'Bright future for Black Vulture' LIFE14 NAT/BG/649, and others will become part of breeding couples involved in various reintroduction programs, such as 'Life for Lesser Kestrel' LIFE 19/ NAT/BG/001017 and 'Egyptian Vulture New LIFE' projects.
