1H4_20110522_2333_cropThe 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. On this website you will find general background information on Egyptian vultures (General Ecology/Conservation Status) and our main current research projects (Population Monitoring/Movement Ecology/Foraging Strategies).

Some parts of this site are still under construction. New photos will be regularly added to the photo galery

Our Research Blog will be regularly updated with information on our latest fieldwork activities, research output and interesting observations on the behaviour and movements of this intruiging bird.
