Within the last few decades the substantial Griffon Vulture population of Croatia has shrunk dramatically. On Cres the nesting population dropped to 20 pairs. In 1993 a non-profitmaking environmental orgaisation was founded near Beli, (named "Caput insulae" after the Roman name for Beli), which supports protection, and in some cases resettlement and rehabitiltation of these so-called Eurasian Vultures.
