Bulgaria’s Biological Diversity – Enclopedic coverage including:

Ensuring continuity of large carnivore habitats in Bulgaria through saving bio-corridors for their migrations

Bulgaria is a predominantly mountainous country with good populations of wolves and bears. The lynx has been exterminated at the beginning of 1940s, but is recently recovering naturally from Serbia, through the west Bulgarian border. The golden jackal has populated almost the whole country in lower altitudes, near water sources.

Bulgaria Galleries

700 km of mountains along the Balkan Mountain Range, a 380 km coastline and more than 2.000 caves are only a few of the natural superlatives Bulgaria has on offer. The country makes up for its rather small size with an outstanding biodiversity and a superb variety of habitats.

Green Balkans – lots of information here

Green Balkans is a leading organization in the field of conservation of rare species and habitats in Bulgaria. The Organization was established in 1988 being Bulgaria’s oldest nature conservation NGO.
