International Vulture Awareness Day

International Vulture Awareness Day

Considering that some vulture species are seriously threatened with extinction, International Vulture Awareness Day aims to educate and draw public attention to the role of this creature for the well-being of the environment.

Due to their scavenging nature, many people misunderstand the beautiful and important birds known as vultures, many species of which are endangered or threatened. International Vulture Awareness Day, which aims to raise awareness about all vulture species, began in 2009 through a collaboration between the Birds of Prey program in South Africa and the Hawk Conservatory Trust in the United Kingdom. Zoos and wildlife organizations around the world organize events where the public can learn more about vultures and sometimes even get close to them. The first Saturday in September is designated as a day to consider the ecological significance of this predator, which is usually misunderstood and often vilified. As some species are seriously threatened with extinction, International Vulture Awareness Day aims to educate and change public perceptions about the critical role these birds play in the environment. There are various ways to celebrate International Vulture Awareness Day, such as attending vulture events at local zoos or nature parks, watching documentaries about vultures, organizing a vulture-themed party, donating to vulture conservation organizations, and learning about the benefits vultures provide to the environment.
