The first Saturday in September each year is International Vulture Awareness Day.
Vultures are an ecologically vital group of birds that face a range of threats in many areas that they occur. Populations of many species are under pressure and some species are facing extinction.
On the 7th September 2019, participating organisations, will carry out activities that highlight vulture conservation and awareness - see https://www.vultureday.org/ for full details.
