On 8th March the LIFE-ZEPAURBAN project received the visit of the “Lesser Kestrel Recovery - Greater chance for the Lesser Kestrel (Falco naumanni) in Bulgaria” LIFE project LIFE11 NAT/BG/000360, the essential objective of which is to reintroduce the lesser kestrel into Bulgaria.

Personnel from Green Balkans and Euronatur held a meeting with the State Office for the Environment and DEMA in representation of the LIFE-ZEPAURBAN project at the Regional Ministry for the Environment and Rural Affairs, Agricultural Policy, and Territory. As it happens DEMA is a partner of both LIFE projects and the organiser of the meeting.

During the meeting the main results of the Bulgarian LIFE project were revealed as it is in the final months of its development; the main objectives of the LIFE-ZEPAURBAN project were also presented. Moreover, the meeting served to exchange information on the synergies of both projects and details of common actions, such as the use of transmitters, nest boxes, etc.

At the LIFE-ZEPAURBAN project we thank the personnel of Green Balkans and Euronatur for their visit and consider that the result of this meeting has been very positive for our project in the early stages of its development.
