ANTIDOTE Program

This programme is the main work of the FWFF-Sofia office and its aim is to reduce the total number of poisoning incidents in Bulgaria. Poisoning comes from many sources; agricultural chemicals, poison baits, rodenticides and others and this programme tries to tackle all these issues.

To achieve this ambitious goal FWFF-Sofia works together with a government agencies, NGO’s and local communities to address the issues and form a co-ordinated action plan.

An important part of this project is the education of local people on the effects of poisoning on wildlife and the dangers it poses to domestic animals such as dogs and cats not to mention the lethal threat it potentially poses humans. These posters also serve as a reminder to local people that poisoning is an illegal action under not 1 but 3 Bulgarian laws. One of the ways FWFF-Sofia does is by producing and distributing eye-catching posters.

These posters also advertise a free-phone number to report poisoning incidents. This helps another one of the ANTIDOTE programmes goals, the collection of carcasses that have been suspected of poisoning as well as any carcasses that are suspected of being used for illegal poison baits. By collecting these carcasses and analysing them with the co-operation of the National Vetinary Institute in Sofia FWFF-Sofia is able to asses the current distribution of poisoning in Bulgaria and look for any clusters where more targeted action is needed. It also helps to build up a database of the types of chemicals that are used in poisoning.

This is the sort of destruction FWFF is hoping to stop
