- Irreplaceable - Murray-Sunset, Hattah & Annuello, Australia September 14, 2017Stretching across three national parks and covering 7,004 km2 of semi-arid shrubland in North-Western Victoria, this area is one of the last refuges for a number of endangered bird species dependent on its unique mallee habitat for survival. Mallee is a term used to describe species of eucalypt plant that have adapted to survive in […]
- BirdWatch Zambia collects data about vulture movements September 12, 2017In July 2016, BirdWatch Zambia (BirdLife Partner in Zambia) embarked on a project to establish safe feeding and roosting areas for vultures – known as Vulture Safe Zones. This was accomplished through partnership and dialogue with farm owners to influence farm management practices, to protect and allow vultures to thrive in these farmland areas.

Remapping of the species’s range with reference to a map of suitable habitat produced through BIOCLIM modelling (Freile et al. 2010) has resulted in a new EOO estimate of 16,600 km2, suggesting that the species meets the range size threshold for Vulnerable under criterion B1. However, the species is known from more than 10 locations and its habitat is not considered severely fragmented (over 50% in patches too small to support viable populations). Comments are invited on the proposal to uplist this species to Near Threatened, and further information is requested. Continue reading
