Griffon vulture (Gyps fulvus) population surveys were conducted during 1996–2002 in the island of Crete (Greece) to document population status and structure. Fieldwork was carried out during the breeding period when birds could be monitored in their colonies. Total population size was estimated at 379 individuals (range = 341–417) with adult birds comprising 63%. The breeding population was estimated at 141 pairs, which were distributed on an average in 23 colonies per year (range = 16–30… Expand

TLDR
Any active destruction of livestock carcasses to prevent the spread of some epidemic livestock diseases will probably produce a concomitant reduction of the Spanish population of Griffon Vulture. Expand

The Cape Vulture at Colleywobbles: 1977–1997
TLDR
In the late 1970s there were about 180 breeding pairs of Cape Vulture Gyps coprotheres at Colleywobbles colony, which increased to over 300 pairs in the 1980s, presumably as a result of birds immigrating to the Transkei. Expand
