Vulture updates - March 2018 - Around the World of Vultures and VSG activities.

Summary / Notes:

This biannual newsletter of the IUCN Vulture Specialist Group features updates on the CMS Multi-Species Action plan (MsAP), but again more alarming poisoning incidents from around the world underline the priority of this threat within the MsAP and globally; this time, these headlines are also from South America for Andean condors as well as from Africa and elsewhere. More positive are updates including new tracking projects of Egyptian vultures in Arabia, Eurasian Griffons in Europe, and Nepalese wild and for the first time released white-rumped vultures in South Asia. Read on for more updates from around the globe.
