The Egyptian Vulture is a rare and endangered raptor species in Europe. Beside the problems in the breeding areas like illegal poisoning, the birds also face human made threats during their migration and wintering in Africa.
A joint expedition between BSPB (Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds) and the Sudanese Wildlife Society found 17 electrocuted Egyptian Vulture along the Red Sea coast in North-Eastern Sudan.
This is a serious threat for a raptor that is already under pressure in it’s breeding areas.
Other raptors killed were Lappet-faced Vultures, Steppe Eagles and Bonelli’s Eagle.
