Open Day at the Mediterranean Wildlife Conservation Centre

The Mediterranean Wildlife Conservation Centre is located at the Son Pons estate, in the municipality of Campanet in Mallorca. Since 2003 it houses the headquarters of the Black Vulture Conservation Foundation (BVCF).

It also houses the Mediterranean Wildlife Conservation Foundation (FVSM) and the ProNature Travel (since 2008).
The centre operates as a transference centre that receives vultures from recovery centres supported by collaboration with several Autonomous Communities of Spain. The vultures are distributed all around Europe to projects in order to reinforce or reintroduce vulture populations in areas where the species formerly went extinct or where they presently are in danger of extinction. After their physical examination and preparation the animals are transported to programs such as the Reintroduction Program of the Black Vulture in France, projects that form part of the Balkan Vulture Action Plan or other related projects that the BVCF caries out around Europe.

Every Monday and Friday you have the chance to visit the Mediterranean Wildlife Conservation Centre and observe the griffon and black vultures in the observatory. Also you have the possibility to recieve directly from ProNature guides more information about their excursions and events.
