On 24th September, 2020, the team from Society Nature Park Sakar together with Historical Museum Svilengrad conducted an educational training on how to recognize the lesser kestrel together with students from the local clubs “Young Nature Researchers “ and “Green Patrols” from high-school “Dr. Peter Beron” as well some teachers and students from Primary school “Hristo Popmarkov” in the museum yard.
During the field activities on the project “You and Lidl for a better life of the Lesser kestrel”, the team from the Society Nature Park Sakar came upon to a helpless juvenile lesser kestrel under one of the nest boxes, when they were installed at the beginning of the project.
