Using research techniques to better understand vulture behaviour and ecology to inform conservation actions

Apart from following vulture research outputs to inform current and future conservation strategies, the Vulture Conservation Foundation (VCF) staff and board members are leading scientists shaping vulture conservation research.

The VCF team has been researching vultures for years, contributing to many important studies that helped underpin vulture conservation in Europe and beyond. From conducting feasibility studies to inform reintroduction projects to tracking and analysing GPS data of hundreds of birds, we have researched a wide variety of vulture topics.

Research Reviews

The VCF team regularly reviews and summarises recent vulture articles of interest to vulture conservationists, researchers, and enthusiasts.

Check out our Research Reviews, which highlight key takeaways of research studies relevant to the species, covering various topics and different areas, including all continents where vulture species are present.
