Event Description

5th September is International Vulture Awareness Day. These incredible birds are vital to ensuring healthy ecosystems. Feeding on carrion, they help clean carcasses that would otherwise be spreaders of disease.

RSPB are working on projects to save Egyptian Vultures ; a migratory species which is resident in the Balkans and winters in Africa. There will be a Facebook event at 13:00 Bulgarian time (2 hours ahead of UK summer time) on the project’s page, with talks by project workers and a question and answer session.
