The main report gives full vulture work updates from across Asia, and relates directly to the agreed priority actions from the Blueprint for Recovery of Globally threatened Asian Vultures. The updated regional priorities, the changes in composition of SAVE Partners (now 23) and the two committees are among the further 2018 details reported. The detailed reports from each country underpin the revisions to the regional Blueprint Recovery plan.
You can also quickly see the areas where progress is slower, and more effort is needed. The meeting in Kathmandu was uplifted by the progress with releases, ketoprofen bans, new members (Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation, Govt of Nepal, and the Myanmar Vulture Working Group), but also highlighted where key challenges are so urgent in safety testing and progressing with releases in India.
We hope you find these instructive, and note that this updated Blueprint forms a key element of the CMS Multi-species Vulture Action Plan. The Blueprint can also be downloaded as a standalone document here.
