There is yet hope...

Egyptian Vulture reported earlier this year, that the notorious power line from Port Sudan to the Red Sea coast, which was reported to have electrocuted hundreds, perhaps thousands, of migrating endangered Egyptian Vultures over the past 60 years, has been disconnected.   The action was taken by the Sudanese government and power company officials after many years of advocacy by many birding organizations.   A new fully-insulated distribution power line will provide safe perches for the migrating birds.   The multi-agency project will make migration by birds such as Egyptian Vultures and juvenile Eastern Imperial Eagles (see photo below) a huge conservation forward leap.
