The “Bred 4 the Wild” Bearded Vulture Breeding Programme is a collaborative conservation effort between governments, the formal conservation sector, corporates and private specialists to save this critically endangered species from extinction. It is estimated that only 400 of these magnificent birds remain, living high up in the Drakensberg mountains that serrate the border between Lesotho and South Africa. Breeding just once a year in winter, the elusive pairs lay two eggs, but only raise one chick. The challenging aim of our project is to harvest 20 to 30 second eggs from the cliff-face nests to hatch and raise at the African Raptor Centre. This breeding group will form a genetic reserve and their progeny
will be released to supplement the dwindling population in the wild.
