Workshop in Turkey 2017

© Doğa Derneği

Between October 6 and 7 in Beypazari, Ankara, Turkey, was held an international workshop within the LIFE project "Egyptian vulture New LIFE”. The workshop was organized by the Doğa Derneği / BirdLife Turkey (DD) and aimed to exchange information and experiences on the status, threats and practices for the conservation of the Egyptian vulture. It was attended by 15 people from 5 countries - representatives of BSPB, DD / BirdLife Turkey, Hellenic Ornithological Society / Birdlife Greece (HOS), WWF Greece, A.P. Leventis Ornithological and Research Institute (APLORI), BirdLife Africa, CMS Raptors MoU, Green Balkans, Vulture Conservation Foundation (VCF), Anadolu University and Mehmet Akif Ersoy University.

It is no coincidence that Turkey was chosen as the host country of the seminar - it hosts a significant breeding population of the Egyptian Vulture, which is estimated at over 1,000 pairs. The workshop started with a field trip, during which three of the four European vultures were observed. It continued with a number of presentations dedicated to the LIFE project "Egyptian vulture New LIFE", the EVFAP, the Vulture MSAP, the poisoned baits use in the Balkans and the Anti-poison Canine Teams, the Vulture Conservation in Israel, the Current and Future Status of Griffon Vulture in Lakes District (Turkey) and etc.
