7 December 2014

Release of an Egyptian Vulture (Neophron percnopterus) saved from the illegal bird trade in Tunisia by the Association “Les Amis des Oiseaux” (AAO) (BirdLife partner in Tunisia) in coordination with the Directorate General of Forests (DGF). Thanks to the collaboration with the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology (Radolfzell), the Egyptian Vulture was equipped with a GPS transmitter to track its movements which will be followed via movebank.
