Thanks to the participation in the international workshop on the supplementary feeding for Griffon vultures organized by the Vulture Conservation Foundation in Alghero from 18 to 20 October 2022, Rewilding Apennines benefitted a fructuous exchange of knowledge and experiences that are very useful to work at the improvement of viability of Griffon vultures’ population in the Central Apennines.
The griffon vulture is an iconic and ecologically important species in the Central Apennines of Italy. Aided by new funding, the local rewilding team are working hard to support population growth.
Funding from Fondation Ensemble will support the comeback of griffon vultures, Apennine chamois and white-clawed crayfish in the Central Apennines rewilding landscape. This contributes to the area’s overall rewilding vision and is good news for nature and people.
We are launching a new initiative aiming at increasing the population size of scavenging birds in the Central Apennines.
