A few pics from the International Vulture Awareness Day held on the 1st of September 2012 at the Vulture Conservation centre and at the Nyoka Vulture Restaurant. It was a good day and there were a lot of school tour groups, so hopefully a lot more people are now aware of the plight of our vultures. Well done to all involved.

Its a great event!

I took the kids there last year (age 2 and 4). I then asked my daughter "what are those birds were flying so high above the centre?" She said they were cape vultures that must have escaped from the enclosures... It baffles the mind that our kids are growing up with the idea that caged is a normal state and free is the exception!

After expaining that they were free wild birds, she immediately came to the conclusion that they must be flying around looking for pigs to hunt... Only because thats what they were being fed in the cages...I think I need to take them to Kruger soon for the real deal (with a large helping patience <!-- s:bouncy: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/bouncy.gif" alt=":bouncy:" title="Enthusiastic" /><!-- s:bouncy: --> ).
