The vulture was part of a reintroduction program by the Vulture Conservation Foundation. We already started the huge job of taxidermizing him last year, and now freelance preparator Bas Perdijk will finish it. He will show, step by step, how to get from a dead animal to an impressive stuffed specimen. When he is finished, Angèle will get a permanent spot in our LiveScience-exhibit.
