- Vultures need you March 24, 2017Let’s face it: vultures are special. Part of human culture, they are seen as disgusting by some, yet loved by others (including us and you).

Archived 2010-2011 topics: Black Tinamou (Tinamus osgoodi): at least Vulnerable, or downlist to Near Threatened?
Black Tinamou Tinamus osgoodi is listed as Vulnerable under criterion B1a+b(i,ii,iii,v), on the basis that its Extent of Occurrence (EOO) was estimated at less than 20,000 km2, in which its population was considered to occupy fewer than 10 locations and is still suspected to be declining due to habitat loss and hunting. The species’s range map has been updated and improved, and the EOO is now estimated at 26,900 km2. Based on this information the species now qualifies as Near Threatened under criterion B1a+b. However, recent fieldwork has uncovered evidence that the species is particularly favoured by hunters.
