Good news in Israel

Ohad Hatzofe of Israel Nature and Parks Authority informs us:

In the last few days you can observe three generations of Egyptian Vultures, captive born and released, in Mt Carmel:
2 birds born 2011 released in 23/01/2012
1 bird born 2013 released in 03/04/2014 (also equipped with a GPS logger, just returned from Ethiopia)
1 bird born 2015 released in 16/04/2016 (with a GPS)
Great satisfaction …
One must remember that the species had extinct from this region over 50 years ago.
