Abstract

[In 2019, 57 Bearded vulture territories (Gypaetus barbatus) were counted in the Alps, 15 of which in Italy: 9 in the Stelvio National Park and in the Venosta Valley, 5 in the Aosta Valley inside and close by the Gran Paradiso National Park and 1 in the Lanzo Valleys, in the Province of Turin (Piedmont). Here, we deal with the latter territory, where the local couple has successfully reproduced and one young fledged on 18th August 2019. This event represents the first successful reproduction of the species in Piedmont since the beginning of the international reintroduction project, undertaken in 1976 and from the first releases of animals born in captivity since 1986].
