"Les Ailes de l'Urga" aims to raise awareness of the need to preserve these birds of prey. Research into these species has been carried out in close collaboration with scientists from various organisations over the last 10 years. The website: ailes-urga.com/recherches.html lists the research carried out to date. 52% of raptor species are seeing their populations fall sharply. Of these species, vultures are suffering the greatest decline.
"In view of the sharp decline in certain species in the wild and their change in IUCN status, it is essential to maintain captive populations with sufficient genetic diversity. We have recently trained breeding pairs of species with a high level of genetic diversity.
