The boundary-post has been chosen with care – the tree has soft bark, allowing for deep scratch marks that are a clear warning, backed by pungent scent, not to trespass. Alejandro set up his custom-built camera trap six metres away and after eight months the jaguar eventually returned to refresh his mark.

Griffon vultures, had been released in terms of Kresna Gorge Reintroduction Project, have moved seasonally up to alpine zone of Pirin National Park. They are feeling so happy of mountain's temperatures and the abundance of water and food, thanks to the transhumance herds of cattle, horses and sheep. Free ranging livestock in spring-summer periods gives more victims due to thunderstorms and predators' attacks. Luckily, dead animals are very much available and likely seen from vultures, which are scanning vast open area every day. #bulgaria #birdwatching #wildlife #lifeprogram #pirinnationalpark #pirin #kresnagorge #griffonvulture

Another of Ruby the stunning new Rüppell's griffon vulture @suffolkowls - - The Rüppell's griffon vulture is the world's highest-flying bird. This critically endangered species is vital to Africa's ecology, flying long distances to eat carrion and keep ecosystems healthy. - - Check out organisations such as @vulpro_official to learn all the amazing things that are being done to save these crucial birds - - #vultures #oldworldvulture #vulpro #vulturelove #savethevultures #griffonvulture #birdphoto #birdphotography #africanbirds #raptor #birdofprey

©Himalayan Griffon Vulture💝 . . . 🔥❣😍❄❤ The Himalayan vulture or Himalayan griffon vulture (Gyps himalayensis) is an Old World vulture in the family Accipitridae. Closely related to the European griffon vulture (G. fulvus) and once considered a subspecies of it, this species is found along the Himalayasand the adjoining Tibetan Plateau. It is one of the two largest Old World vultures and true raptors. This is a huge vulture,and is perhaps the largest and heaviest bird found in the Himalayas. Adults have a ruff that is long and pale brown with white streaks. The ruff feathers are long and spiky. The head is covered in down which is yellowish in adults but whitish in immature vultures. The underside and under-wing coverts are quite pale brown or buff, being almost white in some specimens. The legs are covered with buffy feathers and the feet can vary from greenish grey to white. The upperside is unstreaked, pale buff with the tail quills, outer greater coverts and wing quills being a contrasting dark brown. The inner-secondaries have paler tips... The species is found mainly in the higher regions of the Himalayas, the Pamirs, Kazakhstan and on the Tibetan Plateau (technically in China), with northwestern limits of the breeding range being in Afghanistanand southern limits in Bhutan. Juvenile birds may however disperse further south and vagrants have been recorded in Thailand, Burma, Singapore and Cambodia.

Vultures are obligate scavengers: they feed only on dead animals. There are 23 species of vultures, and most of them are or were threatened. Seen as disgusting because they are scavengers, they have been poisoned, hunted, persecuted since the mid-19th century in every places they occur in. Poisoning, the major source of their decline, can have multiple causes: unintentional if the carcasses are contaminated by some veterinary products or by bioaccumulation (vultures eat at the end of the food chain). Deliberate poisoning by humans willing to eliminate a competitor for livestock (eventhough vultures are not competitors because they are scavengers) or willing to eliminate an "alarm": by flying in circle over a dead animal, vultures help signaling poachers. But vultures shouldn't be considered as evil: by eating dead bodies they provide "effective sanitation service", avoiding some diseases to spread to humans, cattle or wildlife. Reintroduction programs occur all over the world, from local programs to reintroduce vultures poisoned by poachers in South Africa such as Moholoholo rehabilitation centre to wider programs to reintroduce whole populations in France, mostly led by the LPO, a french association protecting and promoting wildlife. Pict 1: Griffon vulture in the Mercantour National Park in France. Griffon vulture are not considered as threathened according to the IUCN list, and its population is currently increasing in Europe but decreasing in North Africa. Pict 2: Lappet-faced vulture in Moholoholo Rehabilitation centre, South Africa. Lappet-faced vulture are considered as endangered on the IUCN list.
