Celebrate International Vulture Awareness Day Sept 6

 Of course if you ask Nero, TRC's education winged ambassador turkey vulture, he would "say" that any day is a good day to celebrate vultures.  The first Saturday in September has been designated as International Vulture Awareness Day.

The intent is to publicize the conservation of vultures to a wider audience and highlight the important work being carried out by the world’s vulture conservationists.
Here are a couple of links to explore for more information: seven interesting facts about vultures from BBC Nature, and a page from the Peregrine Fund that talks about a very serious conservation concern to vulture species in South Asia.
