Project objectives

As a result of this project, the grantee hopes to ensure that fledged chicks are able to fly and do not starve to death. This will hopefully also allow the numbers of Cape Vultures breeding at the two colonies to remain stable or increase.

This project is implemented by Kalahari Research and Conservation Trust.
