Vultures on the Verge of Extinction

  • 12

Five of the six species of vultures in Nigeria have been wiped out, according to a scholar.

True to the scholar’s finding, only dead Vultures are now found in places where they once flourished.

Meanwhile, there are just a few programmes that currently address the drop in the population.

A colleague drew my attention to this interesting article written by Tadaferua Ujorha in Nigeria and Liberia.

Undoubtedly the most aggressive and powerful African vultures, other vultures will usually cede a carcass to the Lappet-faced Vulture because of its strength, size, and ability to tear through tough hide and muscle – almost like a hyena. They can be found at Satara, Parfuri, and Punda Maria.
