From June 20 to July 14, the exhibition “Life with Vultures” is open at the Leventis Gallery. The exhibition showcased the intensive efforts for the protection and conservation of the Griffon Vulture, through the impressive photographs by award-winning photographer Silvio A. Rusmigo, and a documentary screening by producer Kostas Drakos. 

The event marks the culmination of the “LIFE with Vultures” project, a five-year collaborative endeavor co-funded by the EU and aimed at safeguarding the Griffon Vulture population in Cyprus. Through targeted actions addressing key threats such as poisoning, collisions and electrocution, along with initiatives to ensure safe food sources and bolster the local population through restocking with birds from Spain, the project stands as a significant milestone in the efforts to save the island’s most iconic bird species from extinction.
