A new exhibition dedicated to the Egyptian vulture in Plovdiv

30.03.2016

A new traveling exhibition was made in early 2016, since the old one – created at the very beginning of the LIFE+ project "The Return of the Neophron", was damaged by the Sun. The new exhibition can be seen for the first time in Plovdiv Regional Natural History Museum.

The exhibition consists of 9 panels representing different aspects of life and status of the Egyptian Vulture, myths and legends associated with the species, threats and various activities for its preservation. A large board with an image of Egyptian Vulture allows anyone to take a funny photo. Another interactive dashboard, designated for children, will soon be crafted.

The exhibition will visit at the museum until the end of April.

We would like to thank to the Plovdiv Regional Natural History Museum for the hospitality and to the volunteer of the Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds - Irene Mouthaan, for manufacturing the panels!
