Will Griffon vultures survive?
Vultures were once very common throughout the Mediterranean region.
However, poisoning by farmers, hunting, electrocution and habitat loss caused a sharp decline of their population.
The last remaining large population is in Spain, where this video was filmed.
However, even there, the vultures are facing a dramatic decline of their population in the recent years.
While in the past, the farmers used to bring their dead animals to be eaten by vultures and other scavengers to traditional places ("Muladares").
While the European and the Spanish laws allow the opening of traditional Muladares, some of the Autonomous Regions, like Aragon, decided to close down all Muladares. They prefer to spend a lot of money on transporting the dead animals in trucks over long distances, and to cremate them in very expensive and polluting process
WHILE THE GRIFFON VULTURES COULD DO IT FOR FREE AND WITHOUT POLLUTING!!!
Instead, , while the vultures (also Egyptian vultures, bearded vultures and other scavengers) are starving to death.
