[Summary]: The collection of Vladimir Vlaskov, which can be found in the “Atanas Gencev” School in the town of Stara Zagora, contains 1110 vertebrates and invertebrates, collected in the 1935-1968, period in various parts of Bulgaria, as well as in the Black Sea and in the Mediterranean. Vertebrates in the collection are represented by: 41 fish species (and three hybrids) with 54 exhibits, 4 amphibian species with 8 exhibits, 6 reptile species with 6 exhibits, 161 bird species with 245 exhibits and 31 mammal species with 74 exhibits. The invertebrates are representatives of the following types: Arthropoda (the classes Insecta, Arachnoidea, Myriapoda), Echinodermata, Mollusca, etc. The collection can be a valuable source of information about the propagation, systematics and biology of these groups of animals. Specially with regards to the birds in the collection, we can find the first data about the wintering of the Dotterel (Charadrius morinellus), as well as new nesting data on the Bittern (Botaurus stellaris) , the Pond Heron (Ardeola ralloides), the Night Heron (Nycticorax griseus), the Red (Casarca ferruginea) and the White (Tadorna tadorna) Shelduckes, the Grey Crane (Grus grus), the Egyptian (Neophron percnopterus) and the Black (Aegypius monachus) Vultures, the Pochard (Netta rufina), the Hazel Hen (Tetrastes bonasia) the Collared Pratincole (Glareola pratincola), the Rose-coloured Starling (Pastor roseus), etc.
