Long-billed Vulture preening

The Long-billed Vultures (Gyps indicus) occur naturally in central and peninsular India, where they are critically endangered and at risk of going extinct mainly due to the ingestion of a pharmaceutical drugs when feeding on dead cattle.

Currently, conservation measures are considered and put into effect to hopefully stop the dying out of this species.

They are more commonly called "Indian Vultures." Please visit the Indian Vultures species page to learn more about these vultures.
