Great Indian Vulture conservation

Organ Donation

Vultures play a vital role in the ecosystem, cleaning the environment of rotting carcasses – nature’s very own waste disposal mechanism. Since the early 1990s, populations of the Oriental White-backed, Long-billed and Slender-billed Vultures, have declined by 97% and all three species face the imminent threat of extinction.

The shocking decline is attributed to diclofenac, a generic veterinary drug used as painkillers to treat cattle. Vultures that feed on drug-contaminated cow carcasses left out, suffers rapid kidney failure and death. The drug was banned for veterinary use in India, Nepal and Pakistan in 2006, but it continues to be sold and used illegally today.

The scrub patch around Ramadevara Betta at Ramanagara along the Mysore Road, which houses the critically-endangered Long-billed vulture, has been declared by Karnataka government as Ramadevarabetta Vulture Sanctuary (RVS) in an effort to protect and save the long billed vultures and their natural habitats from complete extinction.

It is the only Vulture Sanctuary in whole of South India. It is with increased awareness and effort that we need to protect these last surviving 40 odd birds in the wild from Extinction.
