Description

Bald is beautiful, especially when it allows an animal to be covered in blood and guts. Underappreciated and often vilified, vultures are fascinating birds that play an important role as janitors of the environment.

Vulture populations around the world are shrinking and some species are close to extinction. Visit the aviaries in the Zoo's Africa Exhibit to learn more about these bald birds, how biologists study them and why they need your help.
