The Griffon Vulture is a rare or extinct raptor species across most of Europe. Only in Spain are the numbers high and currently not threatened.
In other countries, a lot of effort is made by dedicated conservationists to help to increase the population.
In Bulgaria a reintroduction effort is underway that will help to increase and secure the population in Bulgaria and on the Balkan.
In order to learn more about the birds and their survival and movements, 5 more Griffon Vultures where fitted with GPS/GSM transmitters by the team from Green Balkans. 4 of the birds are from the 4 different release sites of the reintroduction program.
For more information, see the Green Balkan’s website:
