The Birds of Prey Prtoection Foundation will celebrate the “International Vulutre Day ” on September 5, 2020, in the Uvac Reserve. Unfortunately, this year, due to the coronavirus, we are not able to organize a trip with our dear members and friends to Uvac, but whoever is able to come, is certainly welcome!
For a decade now, the Foundation, together with many organizations in our country, but also in the world, has been drawing the public’s attention to the need to protect the most endangered group of birds of prey, especially vultures, at the beginning of September. We will organize the celebration of the International Vulture Day in cooperation with the Institute for Biological Research “Sinisa Stankovic”, the University of Belgrade, “Reserve Uvac”, and the Institute for Nature Protection of Serbia has been invited to join us. The main event will be the release of three Griffon Vultures, which were “victims” of helicopter flights in the Reserve during July and August this year, and which are currently in the aviary of the Shelter for Soups on Uvac.
