Kiko in Komotini with employers from Forest Service and Regional Directorate of Environment

During the seminars that were held last year by WWF for the authorities in our study area of Thrace, Kiko had the chance to visit their premises and present his talents to the people working there. During in total 8 visits, 83 employees from 9 different authorities participated (Forest Service of Didimotycho, Soufli, Alexandroupolis, Sapes, Iasmos, Forest Directorate of Rodopi, Regional Directorate of Environment and the Management Bodies of 2 National Parks, Evros Delta and Dadia Forest). The participants in these seminars had the opportunity to receive information regarding the recent population status of Egyptian vulture in Thrace and Greece, the mortality reasons based on the knowledge gained within the Life project, the results of the assessment for the illegal use of poisoning (Action A3) and the results of the first operational year of the anti-poisoned units (Action C1). Foresters, forest guardians, biologists and environmentalists met Kiko and took a picture together. The seminars have already produced positive results as forest employers have already called us to inform us for events where poisoned baits were used.
* These seminars were implemented in the framework of the Action C1 of the LIFE10 NAT/BG/000152
