The Life+ Nature projects are co-financed by the European Commission, to promote conservation actions within the Natura 2000 network.
In the ProjectLIFE+ FEEDING SCAVENGERSNatural Feeding Habitat restoration for Black Vulture and other Avian Scavengers in Central Spainparticipates the CBD-Habitat Foundation as coordinating beneficiary, alongside the Department of Development and Environment Board of Castile and Leon`s regional government and the Natural Heritage Foundation of Castile and Leon, both as associated beneficiaries.
The LIFE+ FEEDING SCAVENGERS Project will launch a series of conservation actions primarily aimed at the conservation of the black vulture, as a species of prerogative European Community interest. The objective actions seek the restoration of the natural feeding habitats condition, restoring the spatial distribution and temporary availability of food and the unveiling format of such.
These actions differentially favour the black vulture, as a priority species, against the griffon vulture reducing the established competition for space currently faced.
Alongside the black vulture, seven other microphagous birds target species natural to the area are considered by the LIFE+ FEEDING SCAVENGERS Project. These are:
|Black vulture||Aegypius monachus|
|Iberian imperial eagle||Aquila adalberti|
|Red kite||Milvus milvus|
|Egyptian vulture||Neophron percnopterus|
|Black kite||Milvus migrans|
|Golden eagle||Aquila chrysaetos|
|Griffon vulture||Gyps fulvus|
The project will contribute to improving the conservation status of these species in Spain.
