Vulture Ecotourism

Vulture restaurants can make popular bird-watching destinations. The restaurants can also attract mammals, such as Jackals, Dhole and other birds including Greater and Lesser Adjutants.

Tourist visits directly help to conserve the vultures by providing a sustainable way of feeding the birds: in 2009, visitors paying for vulture restaurants more than doubled the regular amount of food provided to vultures. This may increase vulture breeding success and survival of fledglings once they are independent of their parents. Tourism vulture restaurants take place in Preah Vihear Protected Forest in the Northern Plains of Cambodia. All three resident vulture species can be seen in flocks of up to 80 birds and in 2009 two exciting vagrants were seen at restaurants: Himalayan Griffon and Cinereous Vulture.
