VULTURE: a flight over the last hideouts of the cretan Vulture

These are places that, although a stone’s throw away, may have never crossed your mind … A penetrating look into the wild yet hospitable nature of our island through the eyes of a scavenging bird that has touched Cretans more than any other: the Griffon Vulture [Gyps fulvus]. Such an approach to our insular biodiversity will definitely change what you thought you knew till now… Our itinerary entails trekking through unknown gorges, river beds, the famous, breath-taking cliffs [gremoi] of the Asterousia mountain range, and the Kofinas peak that has excited the imagination and awe of local residents since antiquity. Watching these rare birds with the help of modern equipment and having them presented by experts, through descriptions, a slide show, a printed guide and the use of techniques of audience participation will add to the excitement.
