Map of movements of the Egyptian Vultures marked in the framework of the project Life Rupis (GSM emitters)

The first Egyptian vulture marked under the project was a male, subadult, named Rupis, as a tribute to the Life program and our project. It was captured and marked on July 15, 2016.
It was the first time that a Egyptian vulture of the International Douro was marked with an emitter.

On 28th of May 2017 a 2nd Egyptian vulture was marked, with the purpose of studying feeding habits, routes and migration patterns.
This time, a female, named Poiares, in honor of the place where he was rescued.

The marking of Egyptian vultures for studying is one of the actions of the project Life Rupis. Better knowledge, better conservation.
