BirdLife Botswana statement on the recent vulture poisoning incident by Motshereganyi Virat Kootsositse, Director – BirdLife Botswana

BirdLife Botswana, the BirdLife International Partner in Botswana, unequivocally condemns the recent poisoning of 537 highly endangered vultures by elephant poachers in the Central District of Botswana (CT1). It is inconceivable to lose so many highly endangered vultures in one day. African vulture populations cannot sustain such high losses. We need vultures. Vultures play a critical role in our environment by cleaning up carcasses that contain harmful diseases such as tuberculosis, rabies and anthrax. By doing this, vultures help prevent the spread of diseases amongst humans and animals, and they do all of this for free!
