Few people know that the Egyptian vulture, also known as the bird of the Pharaohs, one of the birds in danger of most rapid extinction, still lives in Bulgaria. How could we save this emblematic species? How can science help avoid the dangers during the first migration of young vultures, the poisonous traps or the electrocution on the Balkans, the poachers of the Middle East or prevent their application in traditional medicine in Africa? Dr. Stoyan Nikolov and Elitsa Ivanova from the Bulgarian Bird Preservation Society will also share personal stories about these majestic birds – of love and infidelity, of their loyalty to their homes and distant journeys, their passion for life and their peril.
