Limassol zoo’s second baby vulture leaves the nest

Limassol Zoo said on Thursday its second baby vulture ‘Lima’, who was born and raised by his parents at the zoo has been handed over to the Game Fund to be moved to a special holding area near the village Limnatis so that he can interact with other vultures until he is released in to the wild.
The zoo, in conjunction with the forestry department has been running a breeding programme for the Griffon Vulture, and last year’s young Griffon ‘Sol’, was the first to be raised successfully by the breeding pair. Before ‘Lima’ left the zoo, he was tagged by representatives of BirdLife Cyprus, which will make him easily identifiable when he is released.
