  • BSPB and “The Return of the Neophron” represented at a Student Conference in Australia

The Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds (BSPB) was represented at the Student Conference for Conservation Science in Brisbane, Australia Jan. 19-20, 2015. The conference was focused on international projects that are making changes in the conservation field. People from all over the world including Asia, Europe, Oceania, Africa, and South America attended.

The project intern of the LIFE+ project “The Return of the Neophron”, Natasha Peters, presented both a talk and a poster at the conference. The talk was focusing on necessary actions for vulture conservation and effective methods to achieve this presenting work done by the BSPB in the LIFE+ project as examples. The poster outlined the LIFE+ project “The Return of the Neophron” and the basic facts about the ecology of the Egyptian vulture, the main threats causing the decline, and the goals, actions and results from the project so far including satellite tagging, insulation of power lines, and anti-poison/bird crime measures being taken.

BSPB and “The Return of the Neophron” team express their gratitude to Natasha who in the summer of 2014 devoted three months of her time to help this emblematic species and took part in different project activities – nest guarding, data processing and analyses from the nest photo traps and fieldwork.
