LIFE RE-Vultures protected the griffon and black vultures in Bulgaria and north-eastern Greece. The team tagged and monitored the birds to establish migration routes and reasons for dying. They also set up a geographic information system and developed maps showing the birds’ locations. They reduced poisoning through awareness-raising, an anti-poisoning dog unit and five feeding stations. The project eliminated electrocution by insulating dangerous electricity power lines. And a breeding programme ensured a sustainable population.
