24 in total across Europe released with a total of 10 in Spain! 🙂 Good news from the VCF
The first release took place on 25 April in Grands Causses and the last one on 30 July in Cazorla, closing extremely prolonged breeding and release seasons. From the 26 chicks produced, the Bearded Vulture EEP assigned 23 to five ongoing reintroduction and restocking projects: four in the Alps (two in Switzerland and two in Germany – a new release site), two in Corsica, seven within the framework of LIFE GypConnect (five in the Grands Causses and two in Vercors), three in Maestrazgo and seven in Andalusia. The remaining three, all females, became part of the network with the hope to one day become parents themselves, providing young ones to support the conservation of their own species.
