A recent paper being published in the Journal of Raptor Research has highlighted the risk being faced by vultures in south Asia. Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS), which has taken out the study, has revealed that they have been making efforts in collaboration with Royal Society for the Protection of the Birds, the UK based organization to preserve vultures.
However, now they fear that all their efforts will go in vain due to the risk being raised in South Asia. It has been found that vultures in South Asia are being tested for the painkiller drug known as aceclofenac. The review published in the journal has unveiled that aceclofenac later turns into diclofenac, which is dangerous for vultures.
The BNHS said that they and the RSPB have been working to ensure that vultures are not being threatened by the pain killer drug diclofenac. With passage of time, they even started deriving the result of their efforts, but now they feel that things will take a U-turn and they might have to start from scratch.
Already, vultures have been categorized under critically-endangered species by International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and such things are adding risks to their lives. It needs to be understood that vultures are vital for ecosystem.
