Vulture Tracking

Cape Vulture at VulProFollow our tagged and tracked vultures with us as they travel around southern Africa.  This information is vital to our research and understanding of vultures’ foraging ranges and habits, it also allows us to pick up when a vulture is no longer moving and potentially injured or dead.

In this section we explain the importance of the tags, the information or history that is recorded using them and why GPS satellite tracking is so important.
