In 2012, a third two-metre high wooden pile breeding platform was erected in the Srebarna Biosphere Reserve in Bulgaria designed to attract new pairs of Dalmatian Pelicans and allow nests to be built above flood water levels.
Since 1998 the watchword for the Srebarna Dalmatian Pelican Project has been to support one of the species last breeding colonies beside Lake Srebarna in Bulgaria, and specifically by creating new breeding platforms, we can prevent nesting birds from drowning when the Danube is in flood and also protect the young pelicans from predators.
The year 2014 will celebrate the 17th anniversary of the successful long term partnership between Le Balkan, Swarovski Optik and Branta-Tours. Further details of the celebrations will follow in due course.
