Here's to celebrating our favourite airborne scavengers, the vulture. Vultures are a crucial part of our ecosystems and help to stop the spread of disease among both the animals of the wild and human being. Sadly some of these noble birds have been persecuted, maligned and poached to near extinction. Loss of habitat, cultural beliefs and the use of their body parts in traditional medicine have seen vulture numbers plummet over the past few years. In celebration of the day we take a look back a plucky Rüppell’s griffon vulture that got a lucky escape from the jaws of a lioness.
