Bulgaria to receive four separate warnings about failures to comply with nature conservation legislation
The European Commission is sending written warnings to Bulgaria about four separate instances of failure to provide adequate protection for its natural heritage. Three of the warnings concern protected areas, while a fourth warning concerns the legislation currently in place. The areas involved are the Pirin Mountains, where an extensive ski centre is being developed; the Tsarevo municipality in the south of the country, where a large protected area near the Black Sea is under threat, and works along the Vaya River in the protected area of Emine-Irakli, near the Black Sea. The fourth warning relates to the failure to bring Bulgarian nature legislation fully into line with European requirements.

Changes in the management of BBF
Since 1st of May BBF has a new Acting Executive director - Mrs. Rumyana Ivanova, a member of BBF team since 2000.
In order to create one more “perfect” structure than the old one, we established in May 2009 an Executive Bureau, which we think best suits BBF management style. The Executive Bureau’s goal will be to improve the management and the coordination in the organization and to provide collective and transparent decision making.
The Executive Bureau consists of Executive Director, Coordinators of thematic groups and Branch Managers (BBF currently has 4 thematic groups and 4 legally registered branches – Strandja, Kaliakra, Eastern Rhodopes and Belasitsa).
