Vultures have existed for eons – as part of our mythology, amongst Egyptian Pharos and Greek legends. Yet in a short span of 20 years, they are close to extinction in South Asia and beyond. Today they are classified as critically‐endangered by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as the population of vultures has declined by an alarming rate of over 99 per cent during the last two decades.
