The silent lagoon - what threatens the nesting birds in Pomorie Lake
Pomorie Lake is the symbol of the town of Pomorie, and the variety of birds is its greatest wealth, along with the healing mud and sea salt - together forming the inextricably linked components of a complete complex. A total of 57 species of nesting birds have been identified here. Among them are the emblematic for the ldgoon sandwich, common and little terns; avosets, black-winged stilts and dozens of others. The colony of sandwich terns, which nests on the artificial islands built and maintained by the volunteers of the NGO "Green Balkans", already numbers over 1500 pairs and is the largest on the Balkan Peninsula and ranks among the most impressive in Europe.

Bringing color and beauty, the birds in turn have benefited from the peace and quiet in the lagoon area.
