During those two days, 21 conferences were planned to dress a statement of the situation of European vultures: the Cinerous vulture, the Griffon vulture, the Egyptian vulture and the Bearded vulture.
They broached the threats affecting species and the different international measures established to protect them.
In addition, 2 workshops were available to raise awareness, questioning on the integration of the vulture as common good and how to settle the problem of vultures soiled water.
Friday afternoon end up with the movie “La fabuleuse histoire du Gypaète barbu” by Anne and Erik Lapied and for Saturday, a festive dinner “auberge espagnole” was planned with a concert of "Le Klez de 12”.
