Bearded Vulture Tracking Study

Post by Dewi » Sun Jun 01, 2014 12:18 pm

RP forwarded a map that shows the movements of Bearded Vultures that have been fitted with satellite transmitters.

Interesting to see where they range to, and if you live in these areas, keep your eyes peeled for them.

Further information about this project can be found on the Maluti-Drakensberg Vulture Project website by clicking on the link below....

Well worth a good read through to find out more about these spectacular birds.

The video at the foot of the page is worth a look to see how children across the World are helping conservation with their unique ideas. ^Q^
