The results of the exhaustive breeding census of Egyptian vultures in the transboundary Douro canyon – done last summer by teams from the ICNF, the Portuguese nature conservation agency, and from the Arribes del Duero Natural Park, revealed that there are 135 pairs of Egyptian vultures along the International Douro and its tributaries (121 pairs confirmed and 14 possible) – while this is still one of the densest populations in Iberia, the survey revealed that at least 15-20 pairs disappeared since 2010.
