Europe’s vulture comeback is the consequence of the fight of some people to repopulate the sky. Symbol of this rescue, the bearded Vulture (or lammergeyer), this huge “bird of fire” decimated in France over a century ago. In France, lammergeyer population are spread out into 3 different groups: the Alps, Pyrenees and Corsica. How to make those populations to communicate? One solution: reintroduce the species in the Cevennes National Park, to create an ecological corridor between the Alps and Pyrenees. Thanks to an european collaboration, 2 young lammergeiers have been reintroduced to the Cevennes Park in 2012, joining the 370 couples of griffon vultures, 20 of monk vultures and 2 of egyptian vultures. This story is a journey between the Alps and the Cevennes, immersing yourself into the world of lammergeyers and their environments.
