The problem


The populations of the target-species are declining in Portugal and throughout the European Union. However, there are still large populations of both species in the project area, even if there has been a decline in the breeding success and a rise in the adult mortality rate due to several factors linked to habitat quality, disturbance and human persecution.
 
The Egyptian Vulture is an Endangered species in Portugal and Spain as well as globally. In the last 40 years the Egyptian Vulture  declined by 50%, which meant a loss of 25% of it´s  natural range in Spain. The Life Rupis project area includes one of the most important populations in the Iberian Peninsula, with 116 pairs. 
The Bonelli’s Eagle is also “Endangered” both in Portugal and Spain. Its population in northern Portugal fell by 40% in the past 10 years. The 13 pairs in the project area represent 1.6% of all individuals in the Iberian Peninsula.
