The Birds of Prey Protection Foundation Belgrade traditionally celebrate the International Vulture Awareness Day in Serbia. The central manifestation will be organized in the most significant colony of Griffon Vultures in the Balkans in the Special Nature Reserve “Uvac”. We have prepared a series of events including the release of vultures from the recovery center. This year, International Vulture Awareness Day will be celebrated on September 3, 2022.
Fondacija za zaštitu ptica grabljivica je obeležila 28 godina postojanja i rada na zaštiti beloglavog supa tradicionalnom posetom Specijalnom rezervatu prirode “Klisura reke rešnjice”.
Grupa od 50 ljudi je uživala po prelepom danu u rezervatu, a beloglavi supovi su dali doprinos ovom događaju. Jato od 22 ptice je u znak pozdrava letelo iznad glava posetilaca na opšte oduševljenje. Učesnici su poželeli i uspešno odrastanje pilićima koji su sada na gnezdima.
