    Story

    I am raising funds for VULPRO, a vulture conservation charity in South Africa. Vultures in Africa are critically endangered and it is vitally important we do something now!

    I am walking with friend Shaun Maslin from Land's End, the very tip of Cornwall to Bude, North Cornwall. The distance is 132.7 miles and we are hoping to take 6 days, camping at night. So PLEASE-PLEASE sponsor me and help save Africa's vultures.

    Vultures form an important ecological component of our natural environment, cleaning up dead carcasses and decreasing the spread of some diseases.

    Today, vultures face an unprecedented onslaught from human activities. They have to cope with electrocutions and collisions with electrical structures, poisonings, land-use changes, a decrease in food availability and exposure to toxicity through veterinary drugs, to list just a few of some of the challenges facing vultures today.

    With the many threats vultures are facing throughout southern Africa, vulture rehabilitation has become an essential part of VulPro’s work. Collecting grounded, injured, poisoned and disabled vultures around South Africa, special emphasis within the Gauteng, North West, Limpopo, Free State, Eastern Cape and the Northern Cape Provinces, VulPro is able to save many vultures that would otherwise have met their untimely deaths.

    By doing this, VulPro is in a position to release those vultures that are able, fit and healthy and to keep those that cannot be released in captivity for breeding, research and educational purposes. Vulture populations are, in many instances, so depleted that the rehabilitation and release of individual birds can be ecologically and genetically significant.
