When you think of vultures, what comes to mind? The most common images might be of Halloween, haunted houses, or a group of birds flying in circles above something dead. In truth, however, vultures may be one of the world’s most misunderstood animal species.
Vultures inhabit each continent except Australia and Antarctica. They are very adaptable and can be found in a variety of habitats, including the suburbs! There are over 20 different species of vultures, 14 of which are endangered meaning they are threatened with extinction.
