Rüppell’s griffon vulture
A high quality, signed A4 print of my Rüppell’s griffon vulture pen drawing, ready to be framed and hung in the perfect spot in your home.
For every Endangered print sold, a tree will be planted in the Albertine Rift forests of Uganda as part of a wildlife habitat restoration project in partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute.
These immense, critically endangered creatures have an eight-foot wingspan and have been known to collide with airplanes flying at 37,000 foot!
Vultures get an undeservedly bad rap. They play a hugely important role in the ecosystem, feeding on animal carcasses and in turn, reducing disease spread. Their corrosive stomachs consume bacteria and viruses that would kill other animals, including anthrax, rabies and botulinum toxins. Heroes.
Because they have been persecuted and poisoned in the past, most species of vulture are endangered. Some are declining at unbelievable rates: the griffon vulture population has dropped by more than 95% in the last 50 years. To conserve these (actually quite beautiful!) birds in Africa, conservation organisations are working primarily to reduce illegal wildlife poisoning and regulate the use of agro-chemicals that cause vulture deaths.
This listing is for the print only; it does not include a mount or frame.
Your print will be protected by a sheet of greyboard and packaged in compostable film.
