Endangered Vultures call Cango Wildlife Ranch Home

Posted by Cheetah Preservation Foundation on Fri November 30, 2018 in Cheetah Preservation Foundation NPC.

Vultures, though often depicted as mean or dangerous, are actually exactly the opposite. Romantics at heart, they pair for life, and unknown to most public, they are natures hygiene life-line. They play an extraordinary role in keeping deadly diseases like botulism, cholera and anthrax at bay, not only for animals in the wild, but this limits the spread of disease for communities the world over. Southern Africa is home to nine irreplaceable vulture species, of which two are endangered, 6 are critically endangered and one is already extinct.

A perfect gift for the sweetest animal at our facility. Speckles,our Spotted-Necked Otter, turns 10 on the 30th of September and we're doing all we can to make it memorable!

"Speckles has been due for a home upgrade for some time, and we are ecstatic to say that we now have the space to give it to her! Sadly, we still have a way to go in gathering funds to complete the whole move. This would be the perfect 10th birthday gift for her bright spirit."
