  • The Return of the Neophron celebrated the IVAD with events in three towns in Bulgaria

Madzharovo, Ruse and Provadia - these were the three towns in Bulgaria, where the Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds within the LIFE+ project “The Return of the Neophron” held a number of initiatives dedicated to the International Vulture Awareness Day - September 5th.

In Madzharovo a few days before the event, volunteers had cleaned the area around the BSPB Nature Conservation Center "Eastern Rhodopes" and painted the bridge over the Arda river where they hung two large banners, welcoming visitors to the city with the words: "Welcome to Madzharovo - the kingdom of the vultures". On September 5th, on the beach of the river a team of the project and volunteers organized a presentation dedicated to the vultures, games and quizzes for children, graffiti and barbecue. Film about birdcrime in Bulgariq was broadcasted, too. Partners of BSPB in the event were the Municipality of Madjarovo and the "Rewilding Europe".

On the occasion of the IVAD the artists of "140 ideas" painted a wall of a residential building in Madzharovo. The theme was devoted to the vultures and their connection with humans.

In Provadia the day was celebrated in front of the Town Hall, where students from the schools "Dimitar Blagoev" and "Earth" gave the name of the young Egyptian vulture from the nest with the online video camera. They named it “Vihar” (“Whirlwind”). A birdwatching tour was organized to the Ovech Castle.

In Ruse the event was organized with the cooperation of the Rousse Regional Museum of History and the Rusenski Lom Nature Park and included games and quizzes for children with many awards.
“The Return of the Neophron” thanks to all partners, volunteers and guests of the event!
