Notes

  • S533 - 277: Surveys reported in 276 suggest a population of 5,000 and declining in Morocco. 7 estimates 90 pairs (270 individuals) in Spain.
  • S8290 - 200-300 pairs in MO (Dodman, 2014), C. 50 pairs in ES (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep.). However, numbers estimated between 25-100 pairs in ES (Green in litt. 2014)
  • T6290 - ES autonomous regions reported fluctuating trend (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep.). Green (in litt, 2014) suggests that the rapid decline continues.
  • T7086 - Earlier assessments were based on data from ES which represents only a small fraction of the population. The new assessment is based on IWC counts from boh ES and MA. Strong increase in the long-term.
