Vultures have been so threatened and their numbers are declining so rapidly, around the world that they have their own unique day. International Vulture Awareness Day or IVAD, is celebrated on the first Saturday of each September each year.
This special day is used to raise awareness for these special birds. Zoos, bird lovers, conservationists and nature reserves worldwide, take part each.
They raise money to help save endangered vultures and they teach people about them, how special, unique and important they are to our environment.
What can you or your school do, to make IVAD special?
