We live at the Pelican Lake Guesthouse & Environmental Project Centre Srebarna, adjacent to the Biosphere Reserve in North East Bulgaria. We provide regular updates on our project work and reports on activity on the reserve. We co-operate closely with a number of other conservation organisations to ensure a sustainable future for wildlife and the environment.

Operation Plastic

Here's a few photos from the day we cleared over 2 tonnes of plastic and other waste from the edge of the Reserve. The water level was so high we were able to collect trash from the flooded areas around the village, that would have otherwise made it's way into the Lake when the waters recede.

The mayor brought 20 workers from nearby Silistra and 40 local volunteers turned up from Srebarna. Including Toshi Izawa (J.I.C.A.) who first thought of the idea of having a clearance program to deal with waste. (Thank you also Toshi for the photos).
