It used to be a common species in southern Europe, however, its population declined almost to extinction for decades. At present, the situation is quite different, and usually, the acceptance of this bird is in the mountain areas is growing.
In Andalusia, the last Bearded Vulture flew in 1986, for 20 years its silhouette was not present in the sky, but since 2006 a reintroduction project has been carried out in the Natural Park of Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas Grande de Europa with more than 214,000 hectares).
In 2015 a historical event occurred for the species. For the first time in 30 years, the Bearded Vulture was reproduced again in Andalusia in complete freedom. Esperanza, daughter of Tono (the first bearded vulture reintroduced in 2006) and Blimunda, is already flying free through the skies of our mountains.
We propose to spend 3 days in this spectacular area and enjoy the acrobatics of the first Bearded vulture in the south of Spain after 20 years.
