VULTURES- LIVING IN THE DOMAIN OF NATURE
Around eight critically endangered oriental white backed vultures were released into the wild from the Jatayu Conservation and Breeding Centre (JCBC).
“The oriental white backed vultures that were released in the wild are residential birds and not migratory, so they largely stay within a radius of 50-100 km of the Breeding centre” says Dr. Vibhu Prakash, Director JCBC.
The population of vultures are increasing with 93% enhancement in the district of South India. Veterinary scientists and doctors have been employed to tackle this problem.
Population of many species are vulnerable to extinction. The program and initiatives taken by JCBC are indeed good. Moreover each states could built their own Breeding centers so that the domestic animal population can be preserved.
Government should implement strict laws to control hunting and poaching of animals. Citizens and village peoples should be aware of the hazardous effects of decreasing animal population.
