As a group, vultures and condors have suffered serious declines in many parts of the world and at the same time they play an important role in the ecosystems where they occur.

Through our members, the IUCN Vulture Specialist Group is dedicated to making a significant and positive impact on Accipitrid and Cathartid vultures.

Our efforts are driven by this central aim, and there are a number of strategies used to achieve this. Learn more about our initiatives and get involved yourself.
