Saving Asia’s Vultures from Extinction

  • Duration: 17
  • Released: 2011

In South Asia, three species of vultures are facing extinction due to a veterinary drug called diclofenac which causes kidney failure and death within a few days. To address the problem, breeding programmes are underway; and a drug called meoloxicam has been found to offer a safe alternative. But is it too late for the small wild population to survive?
