Annual Nature Activity
International Vulture Awareness Day
Saturday, September 21, 2019


Location: World Bird Sanctuary, 125 Bald Eagle Ridge Road, Valley Park, MO

Date: Saturday, September 21, 2019

Times: 10 am - 4 pm

Description: International Vulture Awareness Day has grown from Vulture Awareness Days run by the Birds of Prey Programme in South Africa and the Hawk Conservancy Trust in England, who decided to work together and expand the initiative into an international event. It is now recognized that a coordinated international day will publicize the conservation of vultures to a wider audience and highlight the important work being carried out by the world’s vulture conservationists. On the first Saturday in September, the aim is for participating organizations like the World Bird Sanctuary to carry out their own activities that highlight vulture conservation and awareness.

Join the World Bird Sanctuary as they celebrate vultures with zoos and conservation groups from around the world. Meet vultures from North America and Africa, as well as a live Andean Condor. There will be free-flight shows featuring live flying vultures. A fun kid’s activity center will include games and a Vulture ‘Scavenger’ Hunt. Gifts and souvenirs will be on sale. All activities are free.
