The Northern Bald Ibis (Geronticus eremita), one of the world’s rarest, most distinctive and gregarious avian species, was extinct in central Europe for over 400 years. Intensive measures on the part of BirdLife International and other conservationists are now showing the first signs of success in the colonies of birds living in the wild in Morocco.
ZEISS is supporting the BirdLife activities together with the foundation of Prince Albert II of Monaco. Learn more about the impressive history of the Northern Bald Ibis and the conservation projects that aim to resettle this species even in Europe.
Morocco is the last fully wild refuge of the critically endangered northern bald ibis (Geronticus eremita) in the world.
Together with BirdLife International and the Prince Albert II Foundation, ZEISS is supporting the conservation of the stock and the few remaining breeding grounds in the Souss Massa national park near Agadir.
