See the life of the Egyptian vulture – live or on film


This year the Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds (BSPB) within the LIFE project "The Return of the Neophron" once again have installed a camera for online observing of Egyptian vultures’ nest in the wild. Anyone can become a witness to some of the most interesting moments in nature - welcoming a new life and the devoted care of him.

The Egyptian vultures’ family is already incubating in its nest in Provadia. The camera is the only one of its kind in the world allowing real-time monitoring of this endangered species. Furthermore, three photo traps were installed in Bulgaria and one in Greece. These technologies provide us with A valuable information for the behavior and feeding of the Egyptian vultures, which is needed for their better preservation.

The camera emits in real-time for a fifth consecutive year. The BSPB team have used some of the footage from previous years to create a short movie that can be found here.

The nest can be observed through our project website.
