Satellite Tracked Vulture Movements 02 – 09 June 2019

The latest movements of our Bearded Vultures; Jeremia, Pharaoh and Mollie and our Cape Vulture N207, for the past week, that are fitted with satellite transmitters and included in our monitoring program.

This past week has not been a good one for vulture; a dead Cape Vulture was picked up in the Eastern Cape- quite close to where N207 is foraging. Cause of death still needs to be established. In a second incident, 9 White-backed Vultures and 3 Lappet-faced Vultures were found dead near a carcass laced with poison. The carcasses were already a few days old, but hopefully we will still be able to establish what type of poison was used.
