The Egyptian are the smallest of all vultures. This species faces a number of threats across its range. Disturbance, lead poisoning (from ammunition used in hunting game), electrocution by power lines, collisions with wind turbines, reduced food availability and habitat change are currently impacting upon European populations. In Morocco, the species is taken for use in traditional medicine, because it is believed, like all African vultures, that the species may have local commercial value as a traditional medicine throughout Africa.
