Having met recently with representatives of the Ministry of Environment and Water, the Regional Inspectorate, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and the group who are foremost in ensuring the ongoing viability of the Pelican breeding colonies here Le Balkan Foundation, we are happy to confirm that both species, Dalmatian and White pelican have bred successfully again this year and that many young birds can be seen feeding out on the water. Wild Boar have played a part in the birds deciding to roost elsewhere in the evenings but good numbers of Pelicans are returning during the day to feed here at Srebarna.
Our thanks go to Pavel Simeonov of Le Balkan/Branta Tours for some of the images in this posting.
The work continues here to save Bulgarias only breeding colony of Dalmatian Pelicans and the flora and fauna of this region as a whole from environmental and other factors. Thanks go to all of you who have supported this and similar projects in BG.
