Nesting of rare vultures in Katerniaghat wildlife sanctuary, Uttar Pradesh, India

Out of the 9 species of vultures, more than 90 per cent of two species of vultures, the white-rumped and long-billed, have been wiped out. The main reason for such a decline in the population has been attributed to presence of diclofenac. The manufacture of diclofenac for cattle is now banned.
