Parco Natura Viva collaborates with the griffon vulture repopulation project in the eastern Alpine area, supporting the monitoring centre located in the Natural Regional Reserve of Cornino Lake in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, offering also scientific advice and veterinary support. Furthermore, the park participates actively to the reintroduction of this species in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, where some individuals born and raised in the park have been released over the years. Thanks to the application of radio collars it’s possible to conduct a careful monitoring and thus obtain important information useful to better understand the movement of this species throughout Italy.
The park has been involved for years in the conservation of the griffon vulture, and in 2003 it hosted the first Italian meeting entitled "The griffon in Italy". Furthermore, it often funds the purchase of these radio collars, and in 2013 contributed to the installation of two high-definition video cameras, active 24 hours a day, on the reserve’s feeding site, which allow better monitoring of the individuals attending this area.
