A pair of Griffon vultures feeding on the carcass of a cow. Rajasthan, India. Vulture populations have decreased dramatically in recent years and many are now endangered. This decline in numbers is largely due to poisoning when they unknowingly feed on carcasses that are full of harmful chemicals and lead.
About the Griffon vulture:
The griffon vulture (Gyps fulvus) is a large Old World vulture in the family Accipitridae, also known as the Eurasian griffon. Griffons are primarily scavengers, feeding mostly on the carcasses of deceased animals which they locate by soaring high over open areas. They establish nesting colonies in well protected cliffs and crags in southern Europe, north Africa, and Asia.
