Vultures as art ?

Why not? Vultures are interesting creatures and their shape makes them ideal for art!

In southern Africa the Cape Vulture is the only endemic vulture species. In Namibia it is listed as critically endangered as there are only about 12 wild Cape Vultures left in that country.

South Africa is in a better position, having the largest population of breeding Cape Vultures. Even though this is so, it is still listed as vulnerable. There are approximately 2400 breeding pairs left in the wild (Vulture Programme unpublished data 2011).
