On 8th of October (Saturday) we are celebrating the World Migratory Bird Day in Sofia Zoo with a focus on two iconic migratory bird species – the Egyptian vulture and the Saker Falcon.

Every visitor will have the opportunity to learn more about the Egyptian vulture and its essential role as a “nature cleaner” , and about the Saker Falcon and the challenges for its conservation.
