Illegal poisoning of raptors is – sadly – still a serious problem for raptors in many parts of Europe. No matter if it is Eastern Imperial Eagles in Austria, Common Buzzards in Germany or Cinereous Vultures in Spain, the use of poison to kill raptors and other wildlife is a serious and disgusting crime.
But many people and organisations are fighting illegal poisoning. In Spain, SEO/BirdLife has long been fighting illegal poisoning.
In this new interview, Beatriz Sanchez from SEO/BirdLife Spain talks about the current state of illegal poisoning of raptors in Spain, how many birds have been killed during the last years, what the legal situation is and what SEO/BirdLife Spain and other organisations are doing to stop it.
