Vulture Count Day 

The Vulture Count Day was initiated in 2003 by Ezemvelo KwaZulu-Natal Wildlife (Ezemvelo) with the purpose of; 1) obtaining a minimum total count of each species,
2) recording marked individuals, as well as
3) raising awareness about the plight of vultures.

The count day involves the counting of vultures at feeding sites/vulture restaurants across the country annually on the first Saturday of September. The Count Day is held as part of International Vulture Awareness Day.

Below are some photos taken around the country during the vulture count day  - Witsieshoek, Golden Gate and Eastern Cape.
