Measures regarding conservation of the Egyptian vulture in the Aerosur Wind Farm
We have managed to improve measures to protect the Egyptian vulture in the area of La Janda (Cádiz) though radio tracking of an adult bird and 3 recently tagged chicks.
This bird of prey, of which there were 90 breeding pairs in Andalusia at the end of the 80s and now only 25 remain, is without doubt the most endangered in the region, where it has completely disappeared in three of the provinces there, mainly due to poisoning, the main threat to this bird.
Among the steps that Aerogeneradores del Sur has been implementing for years, those aimed at the conservation of the Egyptian vulture are included within the plan for compensatory measures. This bird is classified as “vulnerable” in the Spanish Catalogue of Endangered Species. The above-mentioned steps have been agreed on with the Regional Division in Cádiz of the Department of Agriculture, Livestock, Fishing and Sustainable Development.
