International Vulture Awareness Day 2017



The first Saturday in September each year is International 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.

The International Awareness Day has grown from Vulture Awareness Days run by the Programme of the Wildlife Trust in South Africa and the Hawk Conservancy Trust in England, who decided to work together and expand the initiative into an international event.

Adult and Juvenile

It is now recognised that a co-ordinated international day will publicise the conservation of vultures to a wider audience and highlight the important work being carried out by the world’s conservationists.

On the first Saturday in September, the aim is for each participating organization to carry out their own activities that highlight conservation and awareness. This website provides a central place for all participants to outline these activities and see the extent of vulture conservation across the world.

Additionally, it is a valuable resource for workers to learn about the activities of their colleagues and to perhaps develop new collaborations or exchange information.
