International Vulture Awareness Day

Save Our Scavengers!

People need vultures because vultures clean our planet. They consume carcasses that would otherwise rot and could spread diseases to humans and their livestock. Their highly acidic stomachs digest nasty pathogens, and their efficiency as scavengers means they reach carcasses quickly and consume them fast!
