Gone for a little over a century, the vulture is being reintroduced into the Verdon since 1999. (This program is conducted by the association Vultures in Haute-Provence and the League for the Protection of Birds delegation Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur in partnership with the National Forestry and the Natural Park of Verdon.)
For the curious, note that an ornithologist host you in Rougon (the reintroduction site) from 15 June to 15 September, for output - about 2 hours - of observation of the vulture and its environment.
Scavenger, up to 2.8 m wingspan to 8 kg, the vulture is one of the largest birds in Europe. In its environment, it plays a role in cleaning the garbage collector carcasses of livestock (mainly sheep and lambs) and animals (wild boar, deer, chamois, etc.)..
His presence also seems to benefit the return of Egyptian vulture, the bearded vulture and the black vulture.
