Another Continental Vulture Crisis: Africa’s Vultures Collapsing toward Extinction

Brief Summary: 
Vultures provide critical ecosystem services, yet populations of many species have collapsed worldwide. We present the first estimates of a 30-year Pan- African vulture decline, confirming that declines have occurred on a scale broadly comparable with those seen in Asia, where the ecological, economic, and human costs are already documented.
