International Vulture Awareness Day

International Vulture Awareness Day takes place the 5th September 2009. This is just a little over one month away!!!

Is your zoo one of the (just) seven listed worldwide which is contributing to Vulture Awareness? If not, why not? If you keep vultures then surely you should be doing something? Even if you don't keep them they do need help.

Why not get your education department to produce a poster and place it next to your vulture exhibit. Perhaps the poster could be designed by a local school. A competition even.

The plight of vultures worldwide is recognised within zoo circles but how much does the average visitor know? Vultures are important.

International Vulture Awareness day is just one of many wildlife conservation events listed on Zoo News Digest's 'Zoo Symposia' page. Check it out. Is your conference or meeting listed there? Please send events for inclusion to me:
