I took the paper to the RSPB Board to get involved in vulture conservation so many years ago that it is a distant memory but thanks to the hard work of hundreds of conservationists from India, Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh, the USA, the UK and many other places the science has been done and there is progress being made.
The RSPB website could do with a bit of an update on its vulture work as it is rather heavy on asks for money and rather light on what is happening now – most of the pages are over three years old. As I understand it, there have been some great leaps forward in the years since I left the RSPB but they are rather difficult to find on the RSPB website (which is quite a common problem with it).
This blog has helped to highlight the problems faced by vultures (see African vultures plummet 18 June 2015, More on vultures 15 October 2014, Video on vultures and diclofenac 7 May 2014, Vultures and diclofenac 20 March 2014) but I’m not really up to speed with what’s happening these days. The offer is open for anyone who can give us a good update on a Guest Blog.
