Saving Asia’s Vultures from Extinction (SAVE) is a consortium of organisations with established expertise in vulture conservation. This network of partners share a common vision:

To prevent the extinction and enable the recovery of Globally Threatened vultures in South and South East Asia, supporting the need to understand threats and guiding priority conservation actions.

This vision will be achieved by co-ordinating and enhancing science, advocacy, conservation delivery, communication and fundraising activities.

The problem

Fifteen years ago there were millions, now they've almost completely disappeared.

The solution

We are working with farmers to stop diclofenac use and to use alternative drugs.

How you can help

For every £25,000 raised a new vulture safe haven can be created. Please help us help them.

The search for an answer

Research has underpinned the vulture conservation programme from the very beginning.

The first evidence of declines was from Keoladia National Park, India. Surveys and monitoring established that declines were occurring at a national and international scale, and triggered a four-year investigation into the cause of the declines.

Theories

It has been proposed that the decline in vultures is due to the increase in feral dogs. However, vultures and dogs always coexisted.

SAVE

We co-ordinate recovery efforts across vulture range countries around the world, provide scientific and other advice, and help with publicity and fund-raising.
