Griffon vulture

The Eastern Rhodopes Mountains, located in South Bulgaria, are the European kingdom of raptors. Griffon, Egyptian and Black vultures roam in the sky together with 270 species of rare birds. The flora of the region is extremely diverse and rich in endemits. Orchids and turtles are everywhere in the rural areas. Deer and wolf fight for the nature territories in the reserves.

Ecotoruism is creating jobs, raising life standards and reducing the depopulation of rural areas. The New Thracian Gold network of entrepreneurs works for the sustainable development of the region by providing nature tours, tourist attractions, and number of nature friendly adventures. Ecotourism, farming and wildlife work all together.
