The range of bearded vultures extends 3 continents, across southern Europe and Asia and throughout portions of Africa.
The bearded vulture is widely and disjunctly distributed across the Palearctic, Afrotropical, and Indomalayan regions, but is very rare in some areas and thought to be in decline overall.
The range of bearded vultures extends across southern Europe and Asia, from as far east as the Pyrenees mountains of Spain to as far west as India and Tibet, south-central China, and southern Siberia. They can also be found across the Ethiopian highlands, as well as in northeast Uganda, west Kenya, Lesotho and southeastern South Africa. Isolated populations inhabit northern Morocco and possibly Algeria.
