Share This Post

For four days in October we will be bringing together scientists, conservationists and the public in the Algarve, Portugal for an international congress looking at the latest research and conservation of vultures in Europe and beyond, in our first European Vulture Conference.

Save the date

We are currently putting the finishing touches to the programme and will be opening the abstract submission process in the coming weeks, and opening registration within the next month. But until then, mark your diaries for the European Vulture Conference. The conference will consist of three days of presentations, discussions and workshops followed by a field trip on the fourth day.

European Vulture Conference

Dates: Tuesday 1 – Friday 4 October

Venue:  NAU Salgados Palace

Location: Albufeira in the Algarve, Portugal

The Vulture Continent

Across the globe populations of vultures are under extreme pressure from multiple threats such as illegal wildlife poisoning, electrocution and collision with cables. In Africa and Asia vultures are declining fast or have become extremely rare. In contrast, today the populations of Europe’s Bearded, Cinereous and Griffon Vultures are increasing and expanding their range after decades of decline and regional extinctions, to the point that Europe is now considered the ‘Vulture Continent’.

The experience of the remarkable turnaround of the status of Europe’s vulture populations and public attitude towards them  shows vulture conservation can and does work.

We are convening our first ever European Vulture Conference to share the latest research and conservation measures and discussing emerging topics from work being carried out across Europe and beyond.

Keep an eye on #Vultures2019 on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn over the coming weeks for some of the key announcements for the European Vulture Conference. We hope you can join us there!
