Boeng Toal Vulture Restaurant is located in remote forest, within the Chhep Wildlife Sanctuary, 15kms from the nearby village Dangphlet, in Preah Vihear Province. The Vulture Restaurant is a feeding program set up by the Cambodian government and conservation NGOs, to help sustain 3 critically endangered species of vultures – Red-headed Vulture, White-rumped Vulture and Slender-billed Vulture.
There has been a drastic decline in vulture numbers, mainly due to Diclofenac poisoning. While in Cambodia, these populations are also threatened by a lack of food. Joining this tour offsets the cost of running the ‘vulture restaurant’ and includes the local community in the efforts to save these impressive birds.
