Now, a dedicated condor conservation group called the Bioandina Foundation Argentina is tracking the sale of carbofuran and pushing for a national ban on the substance. Legislation against such chemicals can bring huge success: India has seen a steady rebound in its vulture populations after almost completely outlawing the sale of diclofenac, a veterinary drug once used on cattle.
Captive-breeding programs and educational ambassadors, meanwhile, can further dispel deadly myths about Andean Condors. The species has an unusual backstory in Western Europe.
In the s, hunters wiped White-tailed Eagles out of the Scottish highlands. More than a hundred years later, the U. Though the program was effective, with annual increases in eagle numbers, sheep farmers started noticing a dip in their livestock numbers. That set off a years-long effort between the two sides to come up with solutions to preserve raptors and local livelihoods.
Ross Lilley, the sea eagle project manager for SNH, adds that extensive, community-based discussion has helped ease the tensions between industry and conservationists.
Incorporating their observational data directly is also a way of acknowledging the unique economic threats that raptors may pose to agriculture. Wedge-tailed Eagle expert Cherriman shares another ambitious, long-term solution: restoring the habitat that surrounds farms to enrich the landscape with a broader palate of food choices for raptors. By this logic, birds would also have less reason to concentrate over farmland, reducing the chance of tense interactions with humans.
Multimillion-dollar sales of songbirds heap pressure on species already in decline.
