AND if I find a BEARDED vulture in difficulty or dead, WHAT SHOULD I do?
Do not approach the bird, do not move it, don't forget that it is a protected species and it is forbidden to move it. The spot where a vulture is found dead is like a crime scene investigation to understand what has happened!
Contact the official nature or wildlife protection organisations in the respective country.
In France, you can contact Asters-CEN74 which, in coordination with the Regional Directorate for the Environment, Planning and Housing of Nouvelle Aquitaine, will pass on the information to whom it may concern depending on where the bird was found (League for the Protection of Birds in the Pyrenees and Grands Causses, Corsica Regional Nature Park in Corsica, French Biodiversity Office, etc.).
