Helicopter Crash in the Mountains

Proving that saving an endangered species is no easy job…

Last year while trying to access Bearded Vulture nests high in the mountains to recover the ‘second eggs’ so vital for the Bearded Vulture Recovery Program, the helicopter the crew were in landed badly and crashed on the snowy top of a peak.

Thankfully no one was seriously injured, but the egg recoveries were abandoned for that season, setting the program back a year.
