Among the different threat European raptors must face there is the diclofenac. This low-cost veterinarian product is used worldwide to manage livestock. However residuals remain in the carcasses provoking the death of vultures feeding on them. Now a new important paper has been published on Science highlighting the detrimental use of this veterinarian product. In our opinion the production of diclofenac should be stopped and its selling forbidden, first in Europe and then worldwide.

Our last paper has been published! It relies on the distribution of short-toed eagle in Italy in relation with its migratory route, the geography of the Mediterranean and the ecological features affecting the breeding area selection. The conclusions suggest that the presence of a natural barrier such as the Mediterranean Sea leads this species to an unexpected southerly direction of colonization in Italy.
