Aves rapaces y conservación.
Una perspectiva iberoamericana
A new Spanish raptor book is now available. It’s title is Aves rapaces y conservación. Una perspectiva iberoamericana.
It covers raptor conservation in South America and Spain. It is written completely in Spanish.
Most of the content of the book is about about raptor conservation in neotropical America but there are also chapters relevant for Europe, for example about the reintroduction of the Bearded Vulture in Andalusia, rehabilitation centres or the work of the Eagle Conservation Alliance.
The case studies about the neotropical raptors cover several species of buzzards, the Crowned Solitary Eagle, Condors, the spectacular Harpy Eagle and more.
Many experiences from the Neotropics can also be applied to other parts of the world. For example, conservation strategies that work for Harpy Eagles can also work for African Crowned Eagles who are ecologically similar (although some changes to meet local problems will always be necessary) or for many other raptors.
Highly recommend for everyone who can read some Spanish and interested in raptor conservation.
