Released in Fuerteventura, Canary Islands, a young female of Egyptian vulture.

Last August 2, technicians of the Government of the Canary Islands and the Cabildo of Fuerteventura carried out the release of young female of Egyptian vulture born in captivity in the Estación Biológica de La Oliva named Tiscamanita. The release was undertaken with the scientific support of the Estación Biológica de Doñana-CSIC. Tiscamanita was casually released in the same date in which Apollo and Teti, two young Egyptian vultures born in captivity at the CERM Endangered Raptors Centre, were released in Italy: a good sign for the next cooperation which will be established between e-distribuzione, Ispra, Federparchi, Regione Basilicata, Regione Puglia (Italy), Gobierno de Canarias, Endesa e Gesplan (Spagna) within the international LIFE project "Egyptian vulture" starting next October which will aim at the conservation of the species both in Italy and the Canary Islands.
