"THE BEARDED VULTURE NETWORK’ LIFE+ PROJECT

Bearded vulture (Gypaetus barbatus) is a included species in UE Birds Directive ( Annex 1), and is listed as "Endangered" in the Spanish Catalogue of Endangered Species (RD 139/2011). Conservation actions contained in this project will be carried out in Picos de Europa National Park and in Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park, both belonging to the 'Natura 2000 Network'.

The short and medium-term survival of Bearded vulture in Spain is affected by three factors: first, its low population density (less than 600 individuals ), second, its very restricted distribution (the population original is limited to the Pyrenees, although some are also being reintroduced in Andalusia); and thirdly, the difficulty in successful colonization of new territories.

 

These factors result in the Pyrenean population is vulnerable to demographic and other unpredictable events.

FCQ has been working on the project target areas for 21 years, and has established strong ties with the local authorities and the population in general.
