Test on Griffon vulture egg
The egg season at the National Center for Raptor Egg Incubation at the Zoo is at its height!
We have successfully hatched three griffon vultures so far: one has already gone to its adoptive parents at the Birds of Prey Aviary at the Zoo and the other two will go up north to additional adoptive parents at Chai Bar Carmel near Haifa.
Another four eggs are in the incubators, waiting to hatch.
The Center is currently being run out its temporary location near the Zoo's veterinary clinic. This week, the construction of the new Center will commence following the completion of the foundations and base.
We look forward to sharing news about the progress of the new Center in our next update.
