Welcome to Saving Asia’s Vultures from Extinction (SAVE) Website

A consortium of 24 Partners working together to implement agreed priority actions listed in the annually reviewed ‘Blueprint for the Recovery of Asia’s Globally Threatened Vultures

"A huge number of people are involved with working to conserve Asia's vulture populations. Some work full time, some part-time, some for a few weeks and many are volunteers. However, all are committed to securing a future for vultures and without them the programme would not function".
