In addition to retaliatory poisoning, the accidental poisoning of vultures after lacing a livestock carcass aimed at poisoning predators, vultures are sometimes intentionally poisoned by poachers. When a poacher illegally kills African wildlife, such as rhinos or elephants, the carcasses attract vultures who are drawn in by the prospect of food. Game officer can sometimes use vultures to find poaching sites and camps. Poachers will intentionally kill vultures to reduce the number of birds that can give away their locations. Your purchase supports our work to stop vulture population declines across Kenya and the greater continent of Africa.
