European vultures face a huge and recent threat!
6 March 2014

Veterinary diclofenac kills vultures and caused a dramatic (99%) and rapid decline in the vultures in the Indian subcontinent – significant effort has been spent to successfully ban the marketing of this drug in that region, as non-toxic alternatives exist. The appearance of this drug in Europe – it is now legally on sale in Spain and Italy – represents a new and significant threat to the European vulture populations, and creates a precedent that can have global impact on the world´s vultures. The Vulture Conservation Foundation and BirdLife International are now asking the EU and members states to take decisive actions to ban this veterinary drug.
