International Vulture Awareness Day – First Saturday in September

Experts call Spain the paradise for vultures, the main bastion for vultures in Europe. Nevertheless they are threatened:

  • Since animal cadavers cannot be left out in nature any more but have to be removed, food for the vultures is scarce which, in rare cases leads to vulture attacks on livestock.

  • This, again, leads to an extremely high, uncontrolled use of poison

  • In the blades of the windmills, countless numbers of birds come to death – especially the vultures

 

Fundación Monte Mediterráneo contributes to the conservation of the vultures since maintaining a vulture feeding ground since 2012. Find some photos attached
