Cinereous Vulture Maps

A GPS transmitter weighs only a few grams, and yet it provides invaluable information that helps inform more accurate conservation actions. Equipping vultures with GPS transmitters enables us to closely monitor their movements and behaviour, understand their foraging ranges and habits, and detect when individuals are no longer moving and potentially injured to act accordingly. The data also reveals any threats vultures face, providing insights that allow us to carry out actions to mitigate risks and help support the species comeback.

As part of different conservation projects, we monitor several Cinereous Vultures across Bulgaria, France, Mallorca and Portugal. You can also follow their lives by checking out these online maps that are open to the public!
