Do you know India has 9 species of #vultures.

They are ecosystem doctors. But in recent years we have lost 90-99% of vulture population in India. Eg white-backed vulture faced a 99.9% decrease whereas slender-billed & long-billed vulture faced 97% decrease.

#VultureAwarenessDay
Many reasons for their decline. But prime reason behind reduction in Vulture population in India was use of Diclofenac in cattle drugs. This cause acute renal failure & they die.

That is why now diclofenac is banned in cattle drugs.
Many conservation breeding programs are also ongoing with good results from Pinjor to Buxa. Where they are raised & later released in wild.

Some of them are equipped with Platform Terminal Transmitters for tracking & to keep a close watch. For study also.

We are being feted by #ideological #purists who pretend that they would never want the American economy restarted until the risk that a single life will be lost is reduced to zero.

Maybe you're a purist as well?

Well, maybe you are, but maybe you aren't.
Have you ever benefitted from the transshipment of goods through the #PanamaCanal?

Did you ever benefit from power generated by the #HooverDam?

Then you are feasting on the remains of the human life cost of construction.
Yes, you have enjoyed the #cannibalization embodied in risks related to the #construction of dams, canals, buildings, ships, roads, etc.

So how many lives is your front porch light worth?

Take a look to get an idea:
