The CMS Memorandum of Understanding on the Conservation of Migratory Birds of Prey in Africa and Eurasia (Raptors MOU) aims to promote internationally coordinated actions to achieve and maintain the favourable conservation status of 93 species of migratory birds of prey in 131 Range States across Africa/Eurasia, and to reverse their decline. The Vulture Multi-species Action Plan provides a comprehensive, strategic conservation plan covering the geographic ranges (128 states) of all 15 species of migratory African-Eurasian vultures and promotes concerted, collaborative and coordinated international actions.
