We have planned also some informational activities related to the local people, lectures, students and parents.
The Society reminds that few years ago the nesting of this bird was reintroduced in village Levka. It was known that this bird did not breed in the country for many years. But these species returned in 2004 via Green Balkans project as per program LIFE to EC. Nature Park Sakar was a closed partner in the process and helped to fulfill a series of successful activities.
