“Walter Neser works at the Vulture Conservation program in Magaliesberg, South Africa. He flies with the endangered Cape Vulture in an attempt to learn more about their behavior from the air.

South African vultures are in serious trouble, especially the Cape Vulture, which is critically endangered, with only 2900 breeding pairs remaining. Reasons for their decline are varied, but include problems such as pylon injuries, malicious poisonings, muti killings (medicine murder) and insufficient food sources.”  Green Renaissance
