The Great Spring Cleaning of Durankulak Beach
Posted on March 12, 2019
Volunteers from the Wildlife Conservation Society took part in the Great Spring Cleaning of Durankulak Beach – an initiative organized by Shabla Municipality, the Green Training Center in Shabla, the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Thousand Voyages Travel Agency. The garbage spread on about 2.5 km of beach and adjacent territories was collected by more than 50 people in over 55 sacks, that filled a big trailer. We thank everyone for the enthusiasm, the time spent, the free work, the smiles, the cheerful mood and the joy of being together outdoors in nature. You can expect the date for cleaning the rest of the beach from the side of the village of Krapets. The event will be announced on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/wildlifebg/
The Durankulak Beach, together with the adjacent lakes and the entire area around, are part of the Natura 2000 network. They are extremely important for the conservation of biodiversity. Durankulak Lake is famous for its rich birdlife during all seasons, while very soon the sand dunes which have been cleaned by us, and the neighboring semi-steppe areas will be covered with rare and interesting plants typical of the Black Sea coast.
