EV_KHristov_1

The LIFE+ project "The Return of the Neophron" (LIFE10 1NAT/BG/000152) is bringing together
4 nature-protective non-governmental organizations from 3 countries determined to prevent the extinction
of the globally threatened Egyptian Vulture from the Balkans:
- by investigating and reducing the main threats for the species;
- by implementing direct evidence-based conservation measures in the breeding grounds and along the flyway (e.g. nest guarding, supplementary feeding, reducing the illegal use of poisons, insulation of dangerous electricity pylons etc.);
- by indirect conservation measures (e.g. by promoting sustainable farming practices, presere important habitats and raising public awareness).

The project operates in Bulgaria and Greece for the period 2011-2016.

It is funded by the LIFE+ programme of the European Commission and the "A. G. Leventis" foundation.
