Vulture education

Blijdorp Zoo

Renewal of education

In the vulture aviary, the old plates were in dire need of replacement. The aviary, the home of very beautiful birds including the Rüppels vulture, Marabou, Hamerkop and Secretary bird, deserved a piece of new, interactive education and no peeling plates full of Hamerkop poo ;).

Danger

At the risk of our own life, the wall was measured and now there is a lot to read about the pecking order, dangers of the vultures and what beautiful projects Blijdorp realizes to protect these special animals in the wild, because unfortunately these birds are also doing badly.

Epilogue :)

Naturally, at Blijdorp Zoo and at Peerdrops, the welfare of the animals is paramount. This meant that we had to wait a while to place the whole, because at the time that we wanted to go in with a drill and hammer drill, a black vulture was just going to nest. This early bird considered the educational wall - and rightly so - much less important than to appropriate a good nesting location for herself.
