   Biography

I fell in love with the birds of prey in my childhood. In 1997 at age of 16 when I had already read all the raptors related books in the local library in my home town Sliven, Bulgaria, I met a lady who was the chairman of the local branch of BSPB (Bulgarian Society for Protection of Birds) about which I even didn't know. Since then I had the chance to participate in projects in Bulgaria for the conservation of the Imperial Eagle, Egyptian, Griffon and Black vultures, Saker and Red-footed falcon, and mapping of the raptors in particular areas for the Atlas of breeding birds in Bulgaria. In 2004-2005 I worked on "predator-human" conflict in Eastern Rhodopes, Bulgaria, activity related to the research and prevention of the possible illegal use of poisons against predators, threatening the vulture populations also. In 2005 I graduated from Sofia University, with a speciality in biology. In April-July 2006 I was on a research project by ERWDA and IWC Ltd. for the Saker falcon, Golden eagle and Long-legged buzzard in Juggar basin, China. Currently I am a post-graduate student in Sofia University and working on my MS thesis on the dynamics, ecology and threats to the Imperial Eagles in one temporary settlement area for the species in Bulgaria.Since 2007 I work in BSPB as coordinator of the Egyptian vulture conservation and research activities.
