The only remaining colony of Cape Vultures in the Western Cape is situated in the Potberg Mountain of De Hoop Nature Reserve, where the colony roosts and nests in a deeply incised gorge. They have managed to climb back from an all time low of around 30 birds in the 1970s to between 175 – 200 birds at present.

My local Birds of Prey centre does some vulture conservation work. They are an important part of the eco-system and it was fascinating to learn about vultures and how endangered they are in parts of Africa and Asia.
