Hatched vulture chicks are super cute
Hatched vulture chicks are super cute

Hello birds of prey supporters,

When we last reported to you, we had 10 griffon vulture eggs in our incubation center. These eggs are transferred to us from institutions throughout Israel (as well as any eggs found by Israel Nature and Parks Authority rangers in the wild). We do this as incubated eggs have a much higher probability of hatching successfully.

We are delighted to report that 7 of the 10 eggs hatched successfully. Of those chicks, 5 are being lovingly hand-reared by our staff using a special method that prevents imprinting so that they can later be released into the wild. The other 2 were placed with adoptive parent pairs in our Birds of Prey Aviary. The adoptive parents are adult vultures that were brought to the Zoo with injuries and cannot be released back into the wild.

In addition, we have also released 11 lesser kestrels back into the wild since our last report. A wonderful boost to the struggling local population.

Thank you for your continued support of this important wildlife conservation project.
