The Eurasian Griffon Vulture (Gyps fulvus) is a large Old World vulture that inhabits a wide range of habitats across Europe, North Africa and parts of Asia, and is one of the largest vultures in the world, with an impressive wingspan of up to 2.5 meters and weighing up to 10 kilograms. The species has a distinctive yellow-brown head and neck, while its body is covered in grayish-brown feathers. The Eurasian Griffon Vulture feeds mainly on carrion, but it will also scavenge for food such as eggs or small mammals if necessary. It often forms large flocks when searching for food sources or roosting at night. The species plays an important role in its ecosystem by cleaning up carcasses that would otherwise spread disease or attract predators. Due to habitat loss and persecution by humans, the population of Eurasian Griffon Vultures has declined significantly over recent decades; however, conservation efforts have helped stabilize numbers in some areas. In order to ensure the long-term survival of this species, further measures must be taken to protect their habitats from destruction and reduce human interference with their activities.
