An Introduction to the Majestic Egyptian Vulture
This book is an attempt to bring together some basic information on the globally endangered Egyptian vulture, which is one of the nine species of vultures found in India. The distribution, mythological significance, habits and habitat, morphology, and subspecies of the Egyptian vulture, as well as its breeding and foraging behaviour, and threats in Uttar Pradesh, are discussed in this book. Some of the information in this book is based on personal observations and experience.
Vultures provide us with an array of ecological, economic, and cultural services free of cost. Therefore, public awareness regarding their importance is crucial. There are many potential areas in Uttar Pradesh that need to be addressed on a priority basis. We have done our best to explain the significance of the Egyptian vulture. If anyone has additional information, please let us know so that we can include it in the next edition.
