The Vulture Conservation Foundation is the world’s leading wildlife organisation solely dedicated to protecting, conserving and restoring Europe’s four species of vultures. With decades of experience of vulture conservation we have significant expertise in; captive breeding vultures for conservation, reintroducing vultures into areas where they have disappeared, tackling the threats vultures face and monitoring and tracking birds in the wild.
