Most vulture mortality cases in the Douro between 2015-2019 related to illegal wildlife poisoning


The data collected in our project confirm that most mortality and incapacitation of vultures in the Douro between 2015-2019 were related to suspected poisoning.

In the period 2015-2019, the LIFE Rupis project registered 40 animals that suffered from suspected poisoning, of which 16 were domestic and 24 wild (16 protected), amounting to many more cases compared to previous years. With regard to causes of death or incapacity among vultures, there were seven cases of poisoning, two deaths in powers lines, one shooting, one undetermined, one by natural cause and one from lead poisoning. This data concludes that most cases were in fact related to suspected poisoning. 

Regarding the toxic substances used, the project also identified poisons that have been banned in Portugal and Europe for years now, notably strychnine. Other substances included rodenticides, insecticides, molluscides and carbamates, in addition to carbofurans, which are also illegal.
