Danube Delta 6 – 13 June 2015

Conservation project

The Romanian Ornithological Society is a small but active bird conservation society. Our contribution goes towards a group of young naturalists called Falco Cherrug (the saker), which is run by Eugen Petrescu, who is both one of the Ibis team – quite often a leader for Honeyguide groups – and the SOR representative in the delta.

One of Falco Cherrug's main activities is an annual ornithological camp. There are pictures of the camps in the Danube Delta, a page from the SOR's magazine Pasari in December 2009 here, and from 2010 here, part-funded by Honeyguide as usual.

If you have any old binoculars or field guides they will be gratefully received by Falco Cherrug, the young birdwatchers group run by Eugen Petrescu.

We also like to support Eco Pontica, a non-profit making organisation established in 2005 to promote measures for the conservation and management of the ecosystems of Dobrogea and the Danube Delta.
