The Himalayan Times : Move to protect rare vultures

The Himalayan Times : Move to protect rare vultures – Detail News : Nepal News Portal.

While the number of vultures with satellite transmitters attached is low this is still great news for conservation of vultures within Nepal. Birds Conseration Nepal should be commened for their continued dedication towards bird conservation.

Hopefully the outcomes of this study will provide managers with data on breeding and feeding habitats that are essentail to vulture survival and thuis allow conservation of these areas to occur with greater accuracy. To my knowledge, the drug ‘diclofenac’ which is responsible for a majority of vulture declines has been banned in Nepal, and thus increasing the chances of survival for the Oriental white-rumped vulture.
