It’s that time of year again when we come together to mark a special day dedicated to the often overlooked yet essential birds that maintain the delicate balance of our ecosystems: International Vulture Awareness Day (IVAD), falling on Saturday, 2 September 2023. This celebration goes beyond mere admiration – it’s a call to action, an opportunity to stand up for these crucial birds and raise awareness about their urgent conservation needs.

Taking action for vulture awareness in 2023 

International Vulture Awareness Day stands as a powerful initiative to raise awareness and take action for vulture conservation.

Vultures, known as nature’s cleanup crew, efficiently dispose of carcasses, silently providing a vital service that contributes to the maintenance of healthy ecosystems. However, human-induced threats like poisoning and electrocution are attributing to alarming declines in some vulture populations. We cannot allow these important birds to vanish from our skies.

Celebrate vultures with us! 

The Vulture Conservation Foundation (VCF) actively supports our partners’ IVAD activities and promotions while hosting our own online events.
