TY Frans. I worked at a small zoo and most people dont realize how much work vultures do and how important they are. They dont look pretty, are kind of scary looking and so we dismiss them. Big mistake.

Quite possibly the most misunderstood birds on the planet, yet we would be lost without them.

Thank you for helping to introduce people to these beautiful and vitally important birds that so many misunderstand or simply ignore

I had no idea that vultures clean up diseases and such. Hollywood is not a vulture's friend. Thanks for the Vulture-Ed Frans! You are doing great admirable work over there in sunny Africa! Keep it up! And don't forget your sunblock!!!

What a wonderful program. I love it that you work so hard for birds, for you know I am a bird lover too. When I get a chance I will definitely donate Frans. Thank you.

PlS. For those who have never seen a vulture in flight, they are incredibly graceful. When I lived in GA, we had a lot of turkey vultures and I could watch them fly all day. You can almost mistake them for an eagle or a hawk from a distance.

Hi all you beautiful people...:)..... vultures are some of the most (or THE most) graceful gliders ever, truly spectacular. Also very effective and energy conserving style of flying ...better be, because they cover VAST distances per day looking for food......
