The 2016 Annual bearded vulture meeting a great success!

 

The 2016 annual bearded vulture meeting – an annual conference of experts on this species, organised by the VCF – took place this weekend in the Hohe Tauern National Park, gathering 80+ conservation managers, researchers, scientists, vulture lovers and government officials from more than 10 countries.

 

 

 

During the meeting – co-organised with the Hohe Tauern National park, participants exchanged the latest news from the different projects, and planned new activities and conservation strategies.

 

 

 

The meeting confirmed that the bearded vulture populations and range in western Europe is recovering, not the least because of all the reintroduction projects coordinated by the VCF – in the Alps there are now 43 established territories, and this year saw a record number of fledglings in the wild – 25! The meeting also celebrated the first release of bearded vultures in the Austrian Alps, exactly 30 years ago, and the pioneers that started this great project then.The meeting also celebrated the first release of bearded vultures in the Alps exactly 30 years ago, and the pionners that started the whole story.The meeting also celebrated the first release of bearded vultures in the Alps exactly 30 years ago, and the pionners that started the whole story.The meeting also celebrated the first release of bearded vultures in the Alps exactly 30 years ago, and the pionners that started the whole story.
