In February we witness a remarkable moment for the Bulgarian part of the Rhodopes. After 31 years, two pairs of black vultures once again occupied nests in this part of the mountain.
Second large group of 13 cinereous vultures were released the Rhodope Mountains rewilding landscape in Bulgaria as part in a long-term programme to re-establish as a breeding species run by our local Rewilding Rhodopes team and their partners from the Bulgarian society for the protection of birds (BSPB). It is expected that they will join the eight black vultures released last in the Eastern Rhodopes and Sakar Mountains, forming a colony together, as this keystone species gradually re-establishes itself within the local ecosystem.
