African Vultures Successfully Restored
Organisms across the planet are facing mass poisoning due to harmful chemicals. These chemicals are in a wide range including pesticides and synthetic fertilizers on the top. One such chemical in Africa poisoning African Vultures. An initiative is in progress from last year and on a massive scale has initiated African Vultures successfully restored.
About the Initiative
This program works on donations from people and is in progress for the last nine months. Birdlife International is working with the Organization for the Defence and Development of Wetlands (ODZH), across Guinea-Bissau. The funds are in investment for investigation, engagement of the local authorities, and raising of awareness in the local people to stop further mass killings.
The African Vultures are magnificent birds of prey residing in Africa. There are eleven (11) species of vultures living in the African region. Six of these are solely confined to Africa while the rest reside over the Eurasian region.
In The Practical
Birdlife International, in association with the West African Birds Study Association, carried out a survey to find out the root cause of the mass killing of African Vultures in the Gambia. The training for the people of Gambia, Ghana, and Ethiopia is helpful in minimizing the root cause and thus the killing of these large prey birds. They are taking practical steps to decrease the human-wildlife conflict in the region.
Another great problem the African Vultures are facing is the belief-based trade of body parts of these African Vultures. The research studies prove that body parts of these birds are not helpful in curing diseases and people now should leave such things. However, it is very difficult to bend the minds of people.
Through voluntary measures, it is now possible to establish safe feeding, breeding, and roosting space for African Vultures.
“Knowledge is Power”, this statement can change the minds of people across the globe. Species saving is now a major issue across the planet earth.
Let’s promise to avoid the unsafe use of unnecessary chemicals across the globe to maintain the population of all organisms. The article by Birdlife is helpful in extracting knowledge of the present article.
