One of the reasons for vulture and eagle decline, apart from dramatic habitat loss due to our human over-population, is a veterinary drug known as diclofenac. Once ingested by vultures, eagles, and other scavengers, it will kill them within 3 days!

"Results of tests carried out on two Steppe Eagles found dead in Rajasthan, India, have shown some worrying results. Both birds had diclofenac residue in their tissues and exhibited the same clinical signs of kidney failure as seen in vultures. Scientists now fear that all species in this genus, known as Aquila (which includes Golden and Spanish Imperial Eagle), are susceptible to diclofenac. With fourteen species of Eagle distributed across Asia, Africa, Australia, Europe and North America, this means that diclofenac poisoning should now be considered largely a global problem."

"Worryingly, it was announced in March that the drug had been authorised for manufacture and use in Italy and Spain and had been distributed to other European countries. Since then, a coalition of organisations including the Vulture Conservation Foundation, the RSPB (BirdLife in the UK) and BirdLife have been campaigning for this decision to be reversed."

Please sign this petition (for free) to ban this drug from being used on the European market too!
