Vulture Restaurant for 3 Critically Endangered Vultures

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.

Species:

The site supports Slender-billed Vulture, White-rumped Vulture, Red-headed Vulture, Himalayan Griffon, Indian Nightjar, Blyth’s Frogmouth, Indian Spotted Eagle and a variety of woodpeckers,
