Blow for Egyptian vulture conservation as tagged bird is poisoned: here.
The Egyptian Vulture (Neophron pernkopterus) is doing well in some Algerian regions. According to the statement of Mohamed Bestami, an activist in the field of environmental protection, the species is expanding in the province of M’Sila in northern Algeria. However, we do not know whether this observation reflects a net increase in the population or a tendency to observe more vultures in the rubbish dumps in the area. Anyway, Algeria has the largest population of the Egyptian vulture in the Maghreb (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya), and the species is still well represented in several Algerian regions: here.
The recently published book, ‘The Vultures of Africa. A Coloring Book will be distributed to schools and conservation organisations throughout Africa to raise awareness of the plight of Africa’s vultures: here.
