Community Managed Vulture Restaurant

Vultures feeding on carcass For the conservation of critically endangered vulture species we have started to operate community managed vulture restaurant since 2013, which is situated in the premise of Ramdhuni forest, Mahendranagar VDC-9, Salbani. Beside the Vulture Restaurant we conduct interactive education and awareness programs to the school students, local peoples and veterinary technicians, workshops and sensitization programs to discourage the use of diclofenac and other non-tested NSAIDs, promotion of safe alternative meloxicam and development/distribution of educational/promotional materials on different aspects of vulture. We also monitor vulture population, roosting and nesting colonies of vulture around Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve.
