In order to protect critically-endangered vultures from being extinct, a Vulture Safe Zone (VSZ) would be created in Madhya Pradesh`s Bundelkhand, Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) officials said today.
With vultures facing threat in
different parts of the world, the government has launched an
exclusive programme for conserving these scavengers of nature
in India where nine species of the bird is found.
One of the world`s best conservation stories is being scripted at a wildlife Centre in Haryana`s Pinjore, where a slender-billed vulture nestling, a rare species, has for the first time hatched in captivity and is ready to fledge.
