Technical workshop on the construction of artificial nests for birds of prey
25 October 2010

On the 20th and 21st October, the LIFE project promoted a technical workshop about the use of artificial nests on the conservation of Black Vulture and other arboreal birds of prey.
Organized by CEAI and LPN, this workshop was held at Amareleja (Moura county) and was attended by many of the most important names on the conservation of necrophagous bird species of the Iberian Peninsula, reuniting a total of 30 participants.
At the first day, specialists presented lectures on several Portuguese and Spanish projects focusing the conservation of necrophagous birds requiring the construction of artificial nests. At the second day of the workshop it was time to move from theory to practice and all participants were taken to the Baldio of Amareleja to learn the methodology and precautions to have when constructing artificial nests for Black Vulture.
Generally, this initiative of the LIFE Habitat Lince Abutre project was successful, not only for the participants’ positive feedback, debates and interaction among them, as well as for the apprenticeship of CEAI and LPN’s technicians for a good accomplishment of the actions predicted in the project, namely for the construction of artificial nests for Black Vulture.

On behalf of the project, we take this opportunity to thank the support given by Amareleja’s civil parish and EBI School, which very kindly gave the space for this event. To them, we leave our thank.
