International Vulture Awareness Day
Despite their less-than-glamorous reputation, vultures play a vital role in maintaining healthy ecosystems. On International Vulture Awareness Day, the world comes together to appreciate these magnificent birds and educate the public about the need for their conservation. Many vulture species are threatened by poisoning, habitat loss, and collision with wind turbines and power lines. The day encourages scientific research, policy changes, and local engagement to protect vultures and their essential role in our world.
