  • Revision and drafting of conservation and recovery plans for scavenger species of interest to the European Community such as: (imperial eagle, red kite, black vulture and Egyptian vulture).
  • Development and implementation of feeding programs for necrophagous birds directly linked to extensive livestock farming, through agreements with farmers.
  • Creating a map within an experimental app to control availability of feeding resources.
  • Monitoring of wild species which are part of carrion eating birds’ diet.
  • Natural feeds; improving consumption to favour species such as the black vulture, Egyptian vulture and red kite.
  • Assessment and reviews of the feeding programs development, and its impact on each target species, measuring efficiency.
  • Evaluation of the ratio of success in reproduction numbers and population control of the black vulture and other target species.
  • Evaluation of results and the socio-economic impact of the project.
  • Information and dissemination campaigns aimed at schools, famers and the general public.
  • Website Development
  • Technical and scientific dissemination of the project’s results and the creation of a good practice manual regarding feeding of necrophagous birds.
  • Coordinating and liaising with other networks and projects.
