Bearded Vulture in the Alps

The animal filmmaker Andreas Kieling came across the bearded vulture on his worldwide search for rare animals. In its ZDF Terra X program "Kieling's wild world" (from 27'50 '') he shows how one of the largest airworthy birds in the world regains a foothold in the Alps. Exterminated in the last century, around 200 bearded vultures are now living in the Alps again.

In his Lecture «Return of the Bearded Vulture to the Alps» he talks about the release and the work of the biologists with the animals.
