Spanish imperial eagle

SPAIN has lost almost 70 million birds since 1996.

Rural and farmland birds suffered the most, with a decrease of 23%, while city birds declined by 18%.

Scientists cited increasing urbanisation which fails to consider bird nesting areas, and the industrialisation of agriculture which leads to habitat loss.
