Last weekend the 6th Saker Falcon festival took place in the village of Malko Kadievo near Stara Zagora.
The Green Balkans team told the guests of the festival about the work of the organization for the return of the species in the nature, and the field work in the village area.

We talked about the successes achieved thanks to our efforts, the biggest one of which is the recording of 3 pairs of Saker Falcons formed by birds, released by the Green Balkans here. They are the first of their kind, registered in the wild nature for decades. The team told about the current project Life for Falcons, funded by the LIFE Program, one of the goals of which is to find the wild falcon families in the nature.

The festival program started with the address from the mayor of Malko Kadieva and a representative of the Municipal council of Stara Zagora followed by the performances of local singer and dancer groups.
Traditionally there was a release of the 6 Common kestrels from the Wildlife Rescue and Breeding Center in Stara Zagora.

During the festival the visitors could learn more about the activities of the organization towards conservation of the Saker Falcon and other species as well as gift by the organizers of the fest and Green Balkans.
