Being endangered, The Centre does a lot of work with different species of Vultures. The numbers of Cape Vultures are declining daily due to injuries and poison.
Cape Vultures are beautiful birds and can reach the age of 40 – 60 years in captivity. They pair up for life and are also very difficult to breed with.
