The Egyptian vulture is one of the most threatened species in Greece

The two day international workshop took place on the 28 of February and 1st of March in Athens, Greece. A total of 27 experts from Spain, France, Italy, FYROM, Bulgaria and Greece and from different organizations and institutions (public authorities, research centres, universities, NGOs, etc) joined their efforts to draw conclusions for the necessary measures needed in the country in order to guarantee the survival of the species in the near future.

The main threats that were recognized as the driver of the strong decline of the Egyptian vultures in Greece were the illegal poisoning, the shift of the traditional livestock practices and the change of rubbish dump system. Together with the intensive monitoring and research, and minimizing the disturbance, these will be the main directions of conservation activities in the next years.
