Pakistan’s Vulture Population Shows Signs of Recovery

Vultures have been on the verge of extinction in Pakistan. However, in recent years, nature’s ‘garbage disposal’ workers have shown signs of recovery.

According to a World Wildlife Fund (WWF) report, the population of vultures found in the #Thar Desert, and scattered areas in southern #Punjab, #AzadKashmir, and southwestern #Balochistan had declined by up to 95 percent since the 1990s.

However, ornithologists have recently spotted hundreds of vultures alongside a water reservoir in #Gorano in Thar – a new hope for the endangered species.
