The bearded vulture reintroduction program is celebrating its tenth anniversary! Each year 2 to 5 individuals are released alternately in Lozère (commune of Meyrueis), in the Cévennes National Park, and in Aveyron (commune of Nant), in the Grands Causses Regional Natural Park. This project, which benefits from European funding, aims to strengthen the existing populations of this scavenger vulture, nicknamed the “bone breaker” for its ability to consume the carcasses of dead animals.
On May 9, two young chicks from the European network of captive breeding centers will be received and transported to a rocky ledge in the heart of the Cévennes, from where they will take flight a few weeks later. Activities (nature outings, observation points) will be organized throughout the summer season to discover these majestic birds of prey.
