A joint team, AOS, PPNEA, RAPA Gjirokastรซr and our local conservation group have started the monitoring of the territories of the ๐„๐ ๐ฒ๐ฉ๐ญ๐ข๐š๐ง ๐•๐ฎ๐ฅ๐ญ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ž (๐—ก๐—ฒ๐—ผ๐—ฝ๐—ต๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฐ๐—ป๐—ผ๐—ฝ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐˜€) in Albania aiming to find out the territories used for this year, the number of breeding pairs and the location of the nests.

This monitoring process, expected to last until September, will provide also the number of fledglings per nest or the reproduction success. This parameter is extremely important because we expect those fledglings would furnish in the near future the endangered population of the Egyptian Vulture in Albania.
