The Action Team for Egyptian vulture’s conservation is growing!

05.07.2018

While the “little” friends of the Egyptian vulture are enjoying their summer holidays, the Egyptian vulture chick of Meteora will undergo intensive preparation for the long trip to Africa. The Educational Team of the Hellenic Ornithological Society/BirdLife Greece will wait until September to wish all the Egyptian vultures a “Fare well"  and to meet up with the school pupils of Kalampaka and other regions.

Already, the Egyptian vulture’s Team in Meteora has acquired new and active members! Our visit to the 1st and 4th Primary Schools of Kalampaka confirmed that the rarest vulture in Greece is well known among the young inhabitants of the area. During our stay in the welcoming environment of the Primary Schools, we discussed with the children the imminent dangers of extinction that Egyptian vulture faces, not only as a rare species, but also as a flagship species for Meteora. With the beginning of the new school year, we will visit more schools, so that the Egyptian vulture’s human family may grow and all together send the message that now is the time for action because tomorrow may be too late…

September it is then, to keep our mutual promise that we will do our best so that the Egyptian vultures return year after year to a safe, welcoming and poison-free habitat.
