Project developed in collaboration with Fundación para la Conservación del Quebrantahuesos. It will last two years (2017 and 2018) and the initiative will focus on the conservation of the bearded vulture, an emblematic and highly threatened scavenger bird specialised in the consumption of bone remains, which has the highest levels of protection in the European Union.

Until now, the Spanish population of bearded vultures, which in turn represents 85% of the European population of this species, has not been able to colonise new areas outside the Pyrenees, as the entire population has been concentrated in a single mountainous unit, which entails a high degree of risk due to geographical isolation. For this reason, work has begun on the reintroduction of the species in the Cantabrian Mountains, specifically in the Picos de Europa National Park, in an attempt to achieve the full recovery of this species in the area.
