Every year at the end of the breeding season and before the start of the new one, the team of veterinarians of the Rescue Centre carries out an obligatory prophylactic examination of all the feathered patients.

This year was not an exception. Among the ones we examined where the Egyptian Vultures kept at the Rescue Centre. The seven birds, including an already formed pair, were weighted, thoroughly examined and treated against parasites, while their aviaries were cleaned and disinfected.

Fortunately, all the birds were in good condition and ready to welcome the winter and the up-coming breeding season.

The prophylactic examinations of the permanent dwellers of the Centre are very important. They help our team monitor the health status of over three hundred permanent patients of the Centre and react immediately in case a problem is revealed. On the other hand, this is an opportunity to maintain the aviaries, accommodating the birds and this is also crucial for their well-being.

Since this year, Green Balkans is a partner in an international project called Egyptian Vulture New LIFE, which also comprises the care for the Egyptian Vultures at the Rescue Centre.
