CELEBRATING INTERNATIONAL VULTURE AWARENESS DAY

Posted on the 30th August 2021

The first Saturday in September has been International Vulture Awareness Day for several years now. We decided to celebrate this occasion by posting a selection of images of these magnificent birds taken by Andre Botha, members of BirdLife Overberg and one other.

Kindly share this widely to increase awareness of these highly threatened birds.
