International Vulture Awareness Day Celebrated in Ethiopia

The International Vulture Awareness Day is celebrated in Ethiopia for the first time on Saturday, September 7, 2019, according to Ethiopian Wildlife Conservation Authority.

The celebration which is hosted in Awash National park included three days of awareness training for the wildlife rangers.

On September 5, 2009, the world recognized the first International Vulture Awareness Day, which is celebrated each year on the first Saturday in September to highlight the ecological importance of vultures and their conservation.
Vultures are birds that evolved to scavenge carrion or dead animals. The 23 species are divided into two main groups based on geography: Old World vultures (Asia, Africa, and Europe) and New World vultures (North and South America).

Vultures contribute to preserving clean environments, utilizing their keen sense of smell to find carcasses from a mile. The Bearded Vulture is one of the few animals to survive on a diet of mostly bone.
