Carloza: MAFRC presents the situation of the bearded vulture…

At Carloza in Spain, the Moroccan Association for Falconry and Raptors Conservation (MAFCR) was invited to participate in the annual meeting “Bearded Vulture” from 9 to 11 November. During this event, the AMFCR presented the situation of the species in Morocco.

The Annual Meeting brought together lots of ideas from the research and monitoring of the species. Importantly for the International Bearded Vulture Monitoring Network it was concluded that there was an urgent need to mark wildborn birds to help improve the demographic models of the population. There is also a need to improve data management of bearded vulture mortality to detect and identify causes.
