About this book

Language: German

Hated as the "lammergeyer", it was not easy for the bearded vulture in centuries past: it was hunted by all means and ultimately exterminated. Today we know that the bearded vulture does not feed on lambs, but almost exclusively on bones. In the 1970s, enthusiastic bearded vulture friends began to organize the reintroduction – in 1991 the first release into the wild was undertaken in Switzerland. Today, 30 years later, it is clear that the release of bearded vultures into the wild is one of the most successful reintroduction projects in the Alpine region.

A reason to celebrate and for a current monograph on the largest bird in the Alpine region. With breathtaking pictures by nature photographer Hansruedi Weyrich.

Summary in German:
Als «Lämmergeier» verhasst, hatte es der Bartgeier in den vergangenen Jahrhunderten nicht leicht: Er wurde mit allen Mitteln gejagt und schlussendlich ausgerottet. Heute wissen wir, dass sich der Bartgeier nicht von Lämmern ernährt, sondern fast ausschließlich von Knochen. In den 1970er-Jahren begannen enthusiastische Bartgeierfreunde, die Wiederansiedlung zu organisieren – 1991 wurde die erste Auswilderung in der Schweiz unternommen. Heute, 30 Jahre später, steht fest, dass die Auswilderung von Bartgeiern eines der erfolgreichsten Auswilderungsprojekte im Alpenraum ist.

Ein Grund zum Feiern und für eine aktuelle Monografie über den größten Vogel des Alpenraums. Mit atemberaubenden Bildern des Naturfotografen Hansruedi Weyrich.
