In 2018, the number of couples staying in the south-eastern part of France welcomed a new couple. They were 17 couples in 2015 and the population grew to 20 in 2018. 17 young fledged. The information on the breeding period of the species in the South-East, the monitoring with photo-traps of feeding stations and the telemetric monitoring of some south-eastern birds is available in the annual report by Cécile Ponchon (CEN PACA), coordinator of the National Actions Plan for the Egyptian vulture in South-East France and local contributors implied in the monitoring and conservation of the species.
