Israel Saves
Nearly Extinct
Vulture Breed

JERUSALEM — The
Lappet-faced vulture is
struggling against total ex-
tinction in Israel.
Mentioned in the Bible,
these vultures are Israel's
largest birds, the female
weighing up to 30 pounds.
They have been reported
dragging off carcasses in ex-
cess of 80 pounds with no
apparent effort.

Although the Nature Re-
serve Authority provides
feeding stations throughout
Israel, many vultures have
died after feeding on ani-
mals that have ingested
poisons. Lappet-faced nestl-
ings take nine years to ma-
ture, and often migrate to
Arabia, never to return.

In 1981, only two breed-
ing pairs remained in Is-
rael. Through these the
Tel Aviv University Zoo
has slowly raised a mod-
est breeding group of
about 20 birds.

Many of the birds at the
zoo, such as the white-tailed
sea eagle, relative of the
U.S. bald eagle, were also
almost extinct, but were re-
scued and bred after much
effort. Today the eagle is
well and reproducing in the
Hula Valley Nature Re-
serve in northern Israel.
