The Egyptian Vulture (EV), despite declining numbers, is still widely spread and can be found on different continents: Asia, Europe and Africa. Being a long migratory bird, it can easily fly from a continent to another. In Africa, the Sahelo-Saharan region is one of their destination, flying 4,000 km from Eastern Europe mainly, to this warmer land where they can spend the winter.
One of the hosting countries is Niger, where they stay, particularly in the South-East. The areas where EVs can mostly be found are the region of Zinder and Maradi, near Nigeria.
