In 2003, scientists found that the prevalence of toxic veterinary drug, diclofenac, was responsible for the disappearance of 99% of vultures in India.
Studies showed that diclofenac was being used to treat cattle and livestock, and causing kidney failure in vultures consuming dead livestock that had been treated soon before their death. This discovery brought together conservation organisations from across the globe to protect and restore India’s vulture population.
