African Vultures in Crisis

Environmental & Science Education
Endangered Species
Edward Hessler

The Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology notes that "Vultures in Africa provide important municipal services to rural and urban communities. Their highly efficient work benefits the continent’s economy by removing livestock and wild animal carcasses and human-generated waste. Today, almost all African vulture species are in severe decline."

This film (~11 m) from the Lab describes causes, consequences and some (possible) solutions.
