Eko-centar Caput Insulae-Beli, in Beli, on Croatia’s largest island – Cres, is a research and education centre for the protection of nature which started its actions back in 1993.
It was set-up by Dr. Goran Sušić, who then became its president.
It is a registered non-governmental, not-for-profit, founded upon the integral protection of the Eurasian Griffon – one of the most endangered bird species in Europe that is threatened with extinction, and which we conduct through the holistic approach to the protection of natural and cultural-historical heritage on the island of Cres.
I have been looking at this one, and have even been in the area… and it is beautiful, unspoiled, and mysterious… have a read of their website, see what you think, but I can tell you one thing… BAJR and missus, are seriously thinking of getting out there for a break and a build… this is archaeology with purpose! Remember that? I can’t wait to learn how to build with drystone.
Add to that the project to protect Griffins… and you thought they were mythical…
Oh, hold on, I mean Griffon Vultures. sorry about getting your hopes up there… still there is plenty more magic out there. See you there perhaps?
