Nomads

In the Greek countryside, groups of pastoral nomads with their herds move from the plains in the winter to the mountains in the summer since the Middle Ages. But not only humans are nomads… The last Egyptian vultures of Greece are fighting for their own survival. Starting their journey from Africa and travelling 5,000km every spring, they arrive in their breeding spots in Greece, where both they and their ancestors were born, next to the Greek pastoral communities. Nowadays, both transhumant livestock farmers and Egyptian Vultures face the risk of extinction, as less than 3,000 transhumant herds and only five breeding pairs of Egyptian vultures remain in Greece. Sharing the same destiny, the fragile future of these two nomads demands our immediate action before it’s too late…
