During a busy summer day filled with vultures circling the sky, conservationists have a goal: to equip a Griffon Vulture with a GPS tag as part of the efforts to track the movements of the species to help restore the trophic chains of the Côa Valley in Portugal. 
.
Conservationists managed to capture and tag an adult Griffon Vulture who is experienced and probably well established in the area, which will provide important data for understanding the ecology of scavenger birds in the region. Named 'Eco', the vulture quickly took off after its release back to the wild and joined a group of eight Griffon Vultures. We look forward to seeing the travels of Eco and hope he has a long future ahead!

For the first time, two Cinereous Vulture nestlings were equipped with GPS tags in the Douro Canyon to study the movements and behaviour of the young individuals. 
.
The species returned to the Douro in 2012 following a natural recolonization that was quite surprising and unique. A pair settled in the region about 100 km from the nearest colonies, located in Spain. Cinereous Vultures usually live in colonies with dozens of individuals. Sometimes, newly formed couples move away from a colony, starting a new nucleus, but usually, these new nuclei form 10 or 20 km from the original colony - not 100km!

Since the autumn of 2020, the Bearded Vulture captive-breeding and release seasons have kept us super busy. In the end, our hard work paid off – we managed to release the highest ever number of young Bearded Vultures in the wild, helping reintroduce and restock their populations across Europe!

To be precise, we released four in the Alps (two in Switzerland and two in Germany – a new release site), two in Corsica, seven within the framework of LIFE GypConnect (five in the Grands Causses and two in Vercors), three in Maestrazgo and seven in Andalusia. The remaining three, all females, became part of the network with the hope to one day become parents themselves, hatching chicks themselves to support the conservation of their own species.

🙌 Vulture conservation works! The status of the emblematic Bearded Vulture and Egyptian Vulture improved in Europe.

@Birdlife.international recently published the Red List of Birds 2021, which was updated based on the data collected by thousands of experts and volunteers across Europe.
 
The report highlights the importance of targeted conservation actions in halting and even reversing population declines, with one of the inspiring success stories being the impressive recovery of the Griffon Vulture (Gyps fulvus). Cinereous Vulture (Aegypius monachus) and Griffon Vulture numbers are increasing, and their European status remains the same – Least Concern.
 
Another positive remark was the downlisting of the Bearded Vulture (Gypaetus barbatus) from Vulnerable to Near Threatened. This outcome became a reality thanks to strategic reintroduction projects and targeted conservation actions, mostly led by the VCF, that increased populations and decreased threats. 
 
For the Egyptian Vulture (Neophron percnopterus) the situation is more complicated. Even though its status changed from Endangered to Vulnerable, mostly due to the lower rate of decline in Iberia, its numbers are still declining in certain regions of Europe, notably in the Balkans. It is urgent to implement further conservation actions at the national level and across borders,  but also in its wintering grounds in Africa and throughout its migration flyaway.

Sardinia is becoming more and more a vulture land – our @vultures_saridnia project just released two 'German' captive-bred Griffon Vultures into the wild as part of the ongoing restocking efforts!

The two Griffon Vultures named “Dresden 1” and “Dresden 2” hatched in @zoodresden and were released yesterday into the wild by @agenziaforestas and @vetsassari. 

We will be able to follow the movements of the birds thanks to the GPS transmitters on their backs.

Our monitoring efforts in Portugal continue. This time, we had a special case – we tagged the first Rüppell’s Vulture with a GPS transmitter in the country, originally an African species that some now call 'Europe's 5th vulture species.' In addition to the Rüppell’s Vulture, we equipped two more Cinereous Vultures, as part of our ongoing efforts to monitor the growing population of the species that naturally recolonised Portugal in recent years.

🙌 Success! Do you remember the Cinereous Vulture that hatched in Bulgaria's wild this year decades after the species went extinct? Exactly 145 after hatching, the young vulture named "Michev-Boev" fledged! This milestone marks the excellent job its reintroduced parents carried out during the long breeding season and signifies the return of the Cinereous Vulture as a breeding species in the country.
