Vultures caught in the web of glass coated Kite strings – endangered lives

Every year in Ahmadabad (Gujarat, India) more than 2500 birds get injured due to injuries caused by strings used to fly kites. These are glass coated strings which are even capable of cutting your neck. Among these birds there are almost a dozen of White Rumped Vultures, a critically endangered species facing the threat of extinction. After the festival also the threads which are entangled in the trees keep cutting the birds. The photograph here shows the threat to a White Rumped Vulture and its nestling in the heart of Ahmadabad city by such hanging “Razor Strings”… Aditya Roy from Ahmedabad
