Cape Vulture Conservation

Cape vultures are an endangered species, threatened by electrocutions and collisions with electrical structures, poisonings, land-use changes, a decrease in food availability and exposure to toxicity through veterinary drugs. We at Virtryx thought they could use some help, so we sponsored a GPS transmitter for the scientists at VulPro to use to track their newest additions to the family, a captive bred Cape Vulture named ‘Virtryx’.

We captured the feed of GPS data from the transmitter and display it on this website here.
