VULTURES OF LALITPUR

Vultures are great friends of humanity. It is a natural scavanger.
If this animal becomes extinct, then we will see dead animals around with epidemics spreading all over.
There were plenty of vultures about 20 years back, but today we can count their number on fingers.
Of late, there has been a sudden decline in their numbers.
In 1999 in India , a Vulture Alert was declared.
Their decline is a bio-diversity loss.
The film explores the reasons for their decline, its consequences and the need for their conservation.
There are very few places In the world , where vultures are living.
In India in Devgarh, District Lalitpur Vultures are breeding successfully.
Vultures like to stay at uninhabited places. But mankind has hardly left any such place today.Today, there is no place for Vultures to nest or to roost.
If these animals donot survive, human existence will also be in jeopardy.
Live and let live .We need to live.They need to live.
Only then, the life cycle on the planet earth will be maintained.
