Global uplisting of Bearded Vulture to ‘Near Threatened’

We  can confirm that Bearded Vulture will be uplisted to globally Near-Threatened. This can only be good news for the populations in Africa!

The following comes from BirdLife’s 2014 Red List update for birds

“Bearded Vulture Gypaetus barbatus is recovering in Europe, but globally it is declining because of poisoning, disturbance and collisions with powerlines, and it has now been uplisted from Least Concern to Near Threatened.”
