Bulgaria's E.ON constructs stork nests

Date: 30.03.2008

The electricity provider for Eastern Bulgaria E.ON and the Bulgarian Society for Protection of Birds started a campaign for the construction of stork nests on electrical posts in Northeast Bulgaria.

"The project is part of the electrical company's policy for environmental protection and preserving the natural balance in the respective regions", E.ON's press announcement states.

The white stork is one of the two species of storks that is included in Bulgaria's Red Book of Endangered Species, and is protect by Bulgarian and by EU law. The bird is strongly attached to one nest throughout its life.

In the last 30 years, the white storks in Bulgaria increasingly prefer to nest on electrical posts. Some 90% of all nests in Bulgaria are located at such places.

By providing nesting platform, E.ON is going to protect both the birds and the electricity transfer system from accidents.
