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.
