On August 1, a team of the Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds in the area in front of the Flora Exposition Center in Bourgas opens the art installation Life for the Eagles in Bulgaria” and organized a special event.

The exhibition will remain in Burgas until August 20th.
BSPB initiates a petition for establishing “National eagles’ day” in Bulgaria. The date chosen is 27th of June. The aim is to remind for the unreplaceable role of these birds in nature through information campaigns and educational initiatives. BSPB addresses this proposition to the Minister of agriculture, food and forestry and the Minister of environment and water. You can support the petition here.
