An open-pit mine in a Natura 2000 protected area<br /><br />Hello,<br /><br />I'm writing in regard to an open-pit mine project in Bulgaria. The affected Natura 2000 areas are BG0002019 and BG0001032. The Technical Report of the mine project mentions an Egyptian Vulture nesting site 300m from the construction site. <br />The construction of an open-pit mine and the air, noise and water pollution, as well as loss of habitat are a danger to the Natura 2000 areas and the species that inhabit them. <br />The Bulgarian authorities gave the go ahead for this project, yet this is appalling. Who, or what institution, can be contacted within the European Union to address this issue?<br /><br />Kind regards,<br />Marcin Sadowski
