Egyptian vulture lead poisoning

Within the framework of the LIFE project “The Return of the Neophron”, a short note on the first reported case of lead poisoning in an Egyptian vulture in the Balkans has been published in the latest issue of the Vulture News Journal. In 2014, an adult Egyptian vulture was found close to Kastoria, Northern Greece, with clear symptoms of lead poisoning. Although the X-rays revealed no shots embedded in its body, blood lead levels were extremely high, measuring 3210 μg/L.
