DISTRIBUTION AND NUMBERS OF THE WHITE STORK (CICONIA CICONIA L.) IN SELECTED BULGARIAN MUNICIPALITIES – RESULTS OF THE 6TH INTERNATIONAL CENSUS OF THE SPECIES IN BULGARIA 2004-2005

DISTRIBUTION AND NUMBERS OF THE WHITE STORK (CICONIA CICONIA L.) IN SELECTED BULGARIAN MUNICIPALITIES – RESULTS OF THE 6TH INTERNATIONAL CENSUS OF THE SPECIES IN BULGARIA 2004-2005

The publication is developed within the “Sixth International Census of the White Stork in Bulgaria” project, funded by the Enterprise for Management of Environment Protection Activities at the Ministry of Environment and Waters. 
The book contains the results of the work done by 38 field teams of Green Balkans and 49 mayors and deputy-mayors, who recorded the numbers of the White Stork in a total of 1772 settlements (in the territory of 74 municipalities of 17 districts) in the period 2004-2005. For the sake of clarity, the results have been grouped by districts and municipalities, as the numbers recorded have also been indicated on UTM maps of Bulgaria. There have been comparisons and analyses of the trends in the population numbers for each municipality compared to the data of the 5th International Census of the species implemented in 1994. The number of risky nests built on functioning poles of the power-supply system, dried trees, or chimneys that need to be made safe through special platforms has also been given for every municipality.
The publication is intended both for the general public – experts and nature-lovers, and for local authorities, experts of the Regional Inspectorates of Environment and Waters, representatives of the power-supply company and “Railway Infrastructure” national company at local level, as well as other interested people that could support the White Stork population by safeguarding the risky nests.
