The initiative is part of the Life for Birds project, implemented jointly with BSPB
EDG West and the Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds / BSPB / organizes an exhibition on “Electric poles – home of wild birds.” The initiative is aimed at children and adults who recognize the cause of biodiversity conservation and would like to turn their ideas into drawings. It is held on the occasion of 30 years since the establishment of the ecological network Natura 2000.
More than 40 children and young people of different ages took part in the competition. The exposition will be open until May 27, 2022.
Natura 2000 is a network of protected areas in the European Union. The purpose of its creation is to ensure the preservation of the most valuable and endangered natural habitats and naturally occurring species of animals and plants.
The aim of this initiative is to promote the Life for Birds project, which is implemented in specially protected areas of the Natura 2000 network and includes field research, prototyping of bird-safe poles, providing opportunities for safe nesting, installation of protective and marking facilities and other activities for the protection of bird life, vulnerable so far to the electricity distribution network.
