Bird Rescue Center
Another part of our aviary is also home to a host of impressive Egyptian Vulture named Anahita, who was hatched in Bulgaria, and was on her annual migratory route southward, when contact with her was lost while she was flying over Lebanon’s Metn area.
An email sent to SPNL led to a frantic search for the vulture, who was found to be severely injured. She was treated for her injuries, and is now recovering at the MLHC bird aviary. She will eventually be transported back to Bulgaria to help breed more of her species, as, due to her injuries, she will no longer be able to migrate.
Unfortunately, she is joined with other shot birds undergoing rehabilitation to be released later, like 2 cranes, a black kite, and other raptors.
