International Vulture Awareness Day.

The first Saturday in September each year is International Vulture Awareness Day.

So why should we care?

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.

The SA Hunters and Game Conservation Association is actively involved with vulture conservation and this short video highlights some of their activities.
