Vulture - Endangered

Endangered

The vultures in south Asia, mainly in India and Nepal have declined dramatically in just the last 10-15 years. It has been proposed that this may be due to residues of the veterinary drug Diclofenac in animal carcasses Government of India has taken very late cognizance of this fact and have banned the drug for animals. However, it may take decades for vultures to come back to their earlier population level. The same problem is also seen in Nepal where government has taken some late steps to conserve remaining vultures.
