‘Hide Sierra de las Nieves’ aims to nurture vultures struggling to find food while also promoting environmentally-friendly tourism.
Various feeding and nesting stations have been installed throughout the national park for the Sierra’s avian population.
The food provided consists of both road-kill and carcasses from the area, as well as the unusable parts of animals slaughtered for human consumption.
“The animal carcasses would otherwise be burned, or they can be eaten by the vultures, which creates less contamination and helps support the population,” conservationist Inmaculada Garcia told the Olive Press.
Garcia’s husband Juan Manuel Garcia Badilla, from Ronda, is the man behind the project, backed with the support of the park’s management.
Bird watchers and nature enthusiasts can call Garcia on 699 189 188 for more information.
