February 2020: India’s Vultures Policy Summary
A new policy summary highlighting the key actions needed for conserving India’s vultures has been agreed between the Indian SAVE Partners with support from SAVE. It highlights those key actions detailed for India in the SAVE Blueprint https://save-vultures.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/SAVE-Blueprint-2019.pdf – but also lists key facts and figures together with the critical references drawn upon in this 8-sides leaflet.
The need for such a summary has been recognised for a while now, and we’re delighted to have this just in time for the 13th CMS CoP being hosted by the Indian Government in Gujarat this month.

Great content! Super high-quality! Keep it up! 🙂
Can we have an update on the vultures released from Rajabhatkawa in December? I was there in January, and I’m almost certain I saw one of them over a nearby village (I’m used to the black kites over there; this bird looked quite different). I’m sure people would love to have some information on the satellite tracking like we can get for the UK ospreys when they’re on migration.
The short answer is that the birds are doing fine, and one has been sighted at Sliguri, others are still closer to the release site. We are hoping to post updates at regular intervals, and especially of the captive bred birds that we plan to release soon in Haryana. Thanks for your interest, and for spurring us on to provide more regular updates!
Many thanks! And do please download and pass it on.
