Is your country represented yet? Perhaps you can contact your local bird conservation organisation and tell them about IVAD09.
But remember, you don’t have to be a zoo, bird park or conservation organisation to become involved. Every individual can support IVAD09 by participating in the Blog Festival. Write about, film, draw or photograph vultures and post your permalink on the Virtual Event website on September the 5th. Mr Linky will be there to take care of your link. Don’t forget to put the adorable Blog for Vultures badge in your post!
The Birds of Prey Working Group of EWT in South Africa and the Hawk Conservancy Trust in England are proud to host the first International Vulture Awareness Day. Organisations in Africa, Europe, the Americas and South-Asia are celebrating this day with a variety of events worldwide.
Vulture Awareness Day aims to create greater awareness of vultures and to highlight the important work done by the world’s vulture conservationists. Each participating organisation will organise activities that highlight vulture conservation and awareness.
Have a look at the Virtual Event site to see how you can support IVAD09.
