I`ve been paparazzi-ed
International Vulture Awareness Day falls on Sat 7th Sept this year www.vultureday.org/2013/index.…
Vultures are an ecologically vital group of birds that face a range of threats in many areas that they occur.
Populations of many species are under pressure and some species are facing extinction.
Vultures provide vital ecosystem services as they scavenge on carcasses, and are nature's most efficient clean-up service. However, the use of a drug called diclofenac in treating sick cattle has threatened their existence.
The main objective of such people engagement activity is to create mass support and awareness of the consequence of losing important keystone specie, which could lead to the spread of infectious disease, environmental pollution through groundwater contamination, as well as rabies with the increase in the number of feral dogs and big cats.
Can you spot the odd one out?
