Endangered species such as the Iberian imperial eagle (Aquila adalberti; Conservation Status in Portugal: Critically Endangered (CABRAL & al., 2005), Bonelli's eagle (Hieraaetus fasciatus; Conservation Status in Portugal: Endangered (Cabral & al., 2005), the black vulture (Aegypius monachus; Conservation Status in Portugal: Critically Endangered (CABRAL & al., 2005), the golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos; Conservation Status in Portugal: Endangered (CABRAL & al., 2005) and the Egyptian vulture (Neophron
pernocpterus; Conservation Status in Portugal: Endangered (CABRAL & al., 2005) occur in the study area (ICNB, 2007) and depend, to a higher or lesser degree on wild rabbit and, consequently, on Poetalia bulbosae swards.
2009: Poison-related mortality effects in the endangered Egyptian vulture Neophron
percnopterus population in Spain.--European Journal of Wildlife Research 55: 415-423.
In the case of the endangered Egyptian vulture (Neophron
percnopterus), it has been reported that vulture restaurants help the maintenance of breeding pairs and even that the breeding success of neighbor pairs to these food sources was higher in comparison to other pairs in the Ebro valley (Grande et al.
The nasal organs of the Black and Turkey Vultures; a comparative study of the cathartid species Coragyps atratus atratus and Cathartes aura septentrionalis (with notes on Cathartes aura falklandica, Pseudogyps bengalensis, and Neophron
Ten species are considered to be threatened viz., Endangered (EN): Falco cherrug and Neophron

Although lead poisoning has been documented in all 4 species of vultures living in Spain, the griffon vulture, (1) cinereous vulture (Aegypius monachus), (13) bearded vulture (Gypaetus barbatus), (14) and Egyptian vulture (Neophron
percnopterus), (15) we did not find any reports of lead poisoning in the vulture species living in Portugal.
Meanwhile, the first couples of Egyptian Vulture (Neophron

Many endangered predacious species like Gypaetus barbatus, Neophron
percnopterus, Circus aeruginosus, and Aquila chrysaetos use this area for feeding.
Rapid population declines of Egyptian Vulture Neophron
percnopterus and Red-headed Vulture Sarcogyps calvus in India.
It was successful in 50 bird species; in 16 of those (Alopochen aegyptiacus, Ara severus, Aratinga acuticaudata, Bucorvus leadbeateri, Cereopsis novaehollandiae, Columba arquatrix, Corvus corax, Corvus frugilegus, Cyanoliseus patagonus, Guttera plumifera, Lamprotornis superbus, Milvus milvus, Neophron
percnopterus, Ocyphaps lophotes, Podiceps cristatus, and Poicephalus senegalus), it was carried out for the first time by using molecular markers and polymerase chain reaction.
