Green Balkans has mounted two new artificial nests for the Eastern Imperial Eagle on large trees on the Dervent Heights area to support breeding attempts of the large eagles.
Lack of suitable nest trees is a problem in some areas of the distribution of the Eastern Imperial Eagle. Artificial nests could provide support to these birds and encourage them to start breeding.
The placement of those new nest platforms are part of the project “Conservation measures for target species of the EU Birds Directive – Lesser Kestrel, Black Vulture, and Imperial Eagle in their main habitats in Bulgaria”, which is implemented by Green Balkans and supported by the European Regional Development Fund of the European Union and the state budget of the Republic of Bulgaria.
