The Canarian Egyptian Vulture (Neophron percnopterus majorensis), locally also known as ‘Guirres’, is an emblematic species that inhabits the islands of Fuerteventura and Lanzerote. The species was once common on most of the Canary Islands, but today is in danger of extinction. This website aims to draw attention to the critical situation of the Canarian Egyptian vulture and our research efforts to improve its current status. .
Our Research Blog will be regularly updated with information on our latest fieldwork activities, research output and interesting observations on the behaviour of this intriguing bird.
