Lecture for Boinik mountain

"The vanishing world of unprotected area Boinik Mountain" was the topic of a lecture by the biodiversity expert of "NTG" Stefan Avramov at the Biological Faculty of Sofia University on 3 April.

Boinik Mountain area is located on the southern shores of the lake "Studen Kladenets" in the Eastern Rhodopes and is unique for its biodiversity. The majority of it is included in hunting reserve "Studen Kladenets". Here you can see the largest population in Europe of free-living red deer, Egyptian, Gryphon and Black  vultures, sea eagles...

In 2012 with the support of NTG was build a modern photographic shelter. The project is working on the restoration of deer in the area, Stefan recalled. 15 red deer were released, there are plans to release another 20.

In 2008 the Union of Hunters and Fishermen in Bulgaria, Bulgarian foundation "Biodiversity" and BSPB proposed Boinik mountain to become protected area. However, there is no development on the project. According to Stefan Avramov such a decision must be taken, as it is important to preserve the biodiversity of the area.

Attendees - mostly young people heard presentations by experts of NTG with great interest and a lot of questions.
