Here are some of our solo and partnership projects


Rare species monitoring with BDZP, BAN, Bird Life International

We assist on an initiative to monitor and collate data on the breeding habits and sites of various endangered species. The aim of these projects is to better understand how we can improve their chances of survival and how their breeding grounds can be managed accordingly.

Waste Away Days

Clearing plastic and other waste from the Srebarna Reserve with groups of school and college students, their families and teaching staff. These days are fun and educational beginning with a talk and guided walk from Kolyo Mihof from the Bulgarian Academy of Science. Along the way we collect the waste. Then we head back to the Centre for refreshments.



Red-footed Falcon Programme with BDZP

In 2007 we were approached by BDZP (BSPB) to assist them on a project to reintroduce the Red-footed Falcon, a bird of prey that has seen its population decline throughout Europe. With their help we installed 30 nest boxes around the region and we monitor these on behalf of BDZP periodically for signs of habitation.




Migration protection with Committee Against Bird Slaughter & PROACT

Each Autumn Mike travels to the island of Malta to join a team of 50/60 volunteers to monitor, observe and report illegal hunting activity during the migration period. CABS intervene where bird trappers, hunters and animal traders commit offences against EU nature protection legislation.





Community work

Every year on World Earth Day with the assistance of volunteers from Srebarna, we plant fruit saplings around the area. These provide free fresh fruit all season long for the local wildlife and of course visitors to the village. We repeat this event choosing a different location each year.







Green Balkans Wildlife Rehabilitation & Breeding Centre

We are looking at ways to strengthen our working relationship with Green Balkans, Stara Zagora. Their fantastic work has already seen many sick and injured wild animals returned to nature, some of which have been released here in Srebarna.
