A rare Egyptian vulture has been rescued by the non-profit institution ‘Wildlife SOS’ rapid response squad after being discovered in a serious condition at St. Peter’s church in Agra, Uttar Pradesh.

On Saturday, church members were astounded to discover a vulture in a semi-conscious state in the yard. Upon noticing the bird’s precarious state, they quickly phoned Wildlife SOS, who determined that it was a juvenile Egyptian vulture.

Following a thorough medical assessment by veterinarians from Wildlife SOS, it was determined that the bird was suffering from acute dehydration and heat exhaustion as a result of the abrupt rise in temperature.

Juvenile Egyptian vultures take small flights, often stopping for rest in safe areas devoid of predators. This particular vulture was unable to take flight due to severe dehydration and heatstroke

Deputy Director of Veterinary Services for Wildlife SOS Ilayaraja Selvaraj told IANS.

While the vulture is presently healing and being observed at the NGO’s recovery facility, veterinarians intend to release the bird back into its native environment once it has recovered completely.

Kartick Satyanarayan, co-founder and CEO of Wildlife SOS, told IANS:

“The Egyptian vulture is a rare raptor that plays an integral role in our ecosystem. As vultures fly at higher altitudes, they are more prone to suffer from dehydration and heat exhaustion. Our team has placed the vulture under medical observation to ensure it recuperates safely from the ordeal.”
