 The draft plan for conservation of most important wetlands was discussed in detail during public discussion held on 26.02.2013 at the Ministry of Environment and Water (MOEW). The plan is developed within the project "Life for Burgas Lakes" implemented by BSPB, BBF, Burgas Municipality, Burgas Salt factory and RSPB with the financial support of LIFE+ Programme of the EU. In the document for conservation and management of wetlands of greatest importance in Bulgaria were made constructive changes thanks to suggestions, additions and corrections that were made by the participants in themeeting.
Official written statement was prepared and submitted by the experts of "Green Balkans", based on the extensive experience in the study and preservation of numerous wetlands (Kalimok, Pomorie Lake, Ovcharitsa reservoir, etc..). Updated information on activities in the area of Pomorie Lake, that are performed within the project LIFE10/NAT/IT/256 "Environmental management and restoration of Mediterranean coastal lagoons and saltworks" aiming at removal of invasive plant species and improving nesting and resting sites for breeding and migrating water birds were added.
The final version of the plan, after the relevant corrections are made, will be submitted for approval by the Minister of Environment and Water and will be presented to the Secretariat of the Ramsar Convention. The new document will be in valid until 2022.
