Climbers and environmentalists reached an agreement for the reorganization of climbing in a way that will not disturb the rare birds. Climbing been shifted to the eastern part of the rocks where there weren't any nesting vultures. The climbers agreed not to undertake climbings on the southern part of the rocks where the vultures nest.

During the joint with climbers activities a representative of the New Thracian Gold" team carried out observations on interesting animal species.

 The Rocky complex of Momina skala (The Maid’s Rock) near the town of Kardjali has got an exceptional rich biological diversity and its nearness to the town creates unique opportunities for its demonstration.
