We hope we are going to use program and experiences from Uvac, where we have been tracking vultures for quite some time this way (more on the GPS tracking page). .. » ), to be applied in the Tresnjica colony. Realization is planned for next spring. For now, the bird remains in shelter. If released him in the spring, we increase the likelihood of survival.
