My name’s Svetoslav and I was born in 1976. I'm living in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. I’ve been passionately interested in nature and wildlife my entire life.

That’s why I studied Biology at Sofia University and after graduation I had the opportunity to start working for the biggest nature conservation NGO in Bulgaria - the Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds / BirdLife Bulgaria where currently, I’m working on Life+ project for conservation of Imperial Eagle and Saker Falcon in Bulgaria.
