innovaeditor/assets/m.topi/3.jpg
Our bird conservation team member Oresta Saliaj and our volunteer Denada Ziu participated in the "Balkan Anti-poison Workshop” that took place in Papingo, Greece along 25-26th of May 2015. The workshop aimed to increase the awareness and existing know-how on the matter of illegal use of poison baits, essential for the conservation of the last pairs of Egyptian vultures in the Balkans.
 
The problem of poison has been identified in Greece as the number one threat for the survival of the species in the country, and it is also known to be an important threat in the rest of the Balkan countries were Egyptian vultures can still be found. Results from the so far investigations carried out by PPNEA around the nesting territories of the Egyptian vulture in Albania show that the poison baits seem not to be a problem for Albania, however further investigations are required.
