It’s Vulture Awareness Day! Vultures are an integral part of our ecosystem, making sure that our environment stays clean and healthy. Their stomach acids are so powerful they can ingest practically any disease without getting sick, which makes them incredible waste removers. The Egyptian Vulture is one of my favorite species, they’re simply stunning creatures, and it’s not hard to understand why they were a symbol of royalty to the ancient Egyptians.
Don’t forget to thank your local vultures for being such beautiful “garbage-removal” birds <3
