Stop Disease Transmission by Saving the Indian Vulture

Target: Mr. Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India

Goal: Advocate for the conservation of the Indian vulture to safeguard its population and preserve India’s biodiversity.

The Indian vulture, a vital scavenger species, is facing a severe decline in its population. The primary cause of this decline is the use of diclofenac, a veterinary drug, in livestock, which leads to the vultures’ death due to renal failure. The depletion of vulture populations has significant ecological consequences, including increased disease transmission and an imbalance in the ecosystem.

To ensure the survival of the Indian vulture, it is imperative to advocate for its conservation. This entails banning the use of diclofenac and promoting the adoption of safe alternative drugs for livestock. Additionally, conserving and restoring vulture habitats, establishing protected areas, and raising public awareness about the importance of vultures in maintaining a healthy environment are essential steps.

The conservation of the Indian vulture is not only crucial for India’s biodiversity but also for the ecological balance. India, with its rich cultural and natural heritage, bears the responsibility of protecting its unique wildlife species. By focusing on the conservation of the Indian vulture, we can contribute to the preservation of ecosystems and ensure the survival of this invaluable bird.

Therefore, we call upon Mr. Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, to actively advocate for the conservation of the Indian vulture. We urge him to take decisive action by implementing policies and regulations to ban diclofenac, promote safe alternatives, and support habitat restoration initiatives. Additionally, we request him to allocate resources for research, monitoring, and public education programs to raise awareness about the critical role of vultures in maintaining a healthy environment.

The conservation of the Indian vulture will not only preserve India’s biodiversity but also strengthen its international reputation as a leader in wildlife conservation. It is our collective responsibility to protect and conserve this magnificent bird for the benefit of current and future generations. Sign below and demand urgent action.
