Since 2011, the IUCN Species Survival Commission’s Vulture Specialist Group (VSG) is dedicated to vulture conservation, research, and education worldwide. The VSG brings together biologists, conservationists, and people from other areas of expertise that work for vulture conservation. It was established with the philosophy that  

groups of concerned people can take a group of threatened species under their protection and assume responsibility for their survival. 

The Vulture Conservation Foundation (VCF) is the European regional co-chair of the IUCN’s VSG. Meanwhile, in this issue, the new regional co-chair for North America was announced, welcome Evan Buechley! 

Apart from this biannual newsletter, the IUCN VSG also has a journal called Vulture News, published since 1979 and with open access, a hub for the latest research, news, information, and reports on vultures from all parts of the world.
