@ all: Because the prices for accommodation in Bulgaria are relatively low, you are kindly invited to make a donation, which will be used exclusively for the continuation of the research and conservation work on the Mouse-tailed dormouse (Myomimus roachi) in Bulgaria.
Make your donation here: Discover_mammal_donation Your donation will be highly appreciated as there is not secured funding for this work after 2021.
Many thanks in advance!
