Vultures don't top most "fave wildlife" lists, but these characterful birds deserve protection too.

They play a vital, if unglamorous role scavenging carcasses, yet face serious threats such as poisoning, power line collisons and habitat loss.

A straightforward way to help is to buy the latest Woolworths reusable bag, which features them: R10 per bag sold goes to reputable vulture conservation efforts.
