Vultures are awesome birds. They are majestic, amusing, vulnerable, and yet sadly, are much misunderstood.

Most of us know very little about vultures, and though we don’t realise, much of what we do know tends to be myth and speculation. That’s why we teamed up with VulPro in South Africa to produce a new resource. It’s designed for school and community use, is available in print and digital, in English and Portuguese. We are also running interactive on-line sessions for schools and community groups to allow people to see vultures close up, learn about different species and talk to vulture experts.
