The female scavenger vulture from the Prague Zoo is a hope for the future of its kind
“There are less than thirty pairs of scavengers left in Bulgaria,” said Miroslav Bobek, the director of the Prague Zoo. “And our role in protecting this species is crucial. Colleague Antonín Vaidl coordinates the European breeding program of carrion-eating vultures and the Prague Zoo supplies birds to Bulgaria both for breeding and for release into the wild. In addition, it finances, for example, a ‘vulture restaurant’, we bought a car for the local security guards, etc. The success associated with Bojana is a great encouragement for us, “he added.
