Eurafrica Conservation Projects is a non-profit organisation based in Italy that promotes conservation of biodiversity through projects and events in defence of wildlife.
Most of African vultures are critically endangered. Considering their crucial role within the ecosystem in avoiding the spread of potentially deadly diseases, we must do anything we can to help them. In Africa there are 11 species of vultures, six of which live exclusively on the continent, while the remaining are widespread also in Eurasia. Seven species out of eleven have been included in IUCN Red List as Endangered (Egyptian Vulture, Lappet-faced Vulture, Cape Vulture) and Critically Endangered (Rüppell’s Vulture, White-headed Vulture, White-backed Vulture, Hooded Vulture).
The Secretary Bird was uplisted from Near-threatened to Vulnerable. The only representative of the Sagittariidae family, it is a species which entirely occurs in sub-Saharan Africa. Habitat loss and degradation probably caused a considerable reduction in the areas this species previously occupied.
For this purpose EURAFRICA CONSERVATION PROJECTS started to deal with this sensitive and current issues. In Projects section you may find further information about the theme and what we are trying to achieve.
Can you imagine a world without these extraordinary birds?
