Diclofenac – Affirmation of Carson’s Concerns

12 of the 23 species of Vulture, sole scavenger amongst vertebrate birds, are classified as “near threatenedâ€ï¿½ or “endangeredâ€ï¿½. Across the Indian subcontinent and South Asia there is particular concern with an observed 92 percent reduction of Gyps vultures. The vulture species found in South Asian region has a scientific name given as Gyps bengalensis, common name is Asian White-backed vulture and the local name in the subcontinent region is Gidh. Scavenging birds play a significant, often unappreciated role in regulating the energy systems of the food web [1] by recycling nutrients locked in the dead bodies of animals. As a result of the vultures’ corrosive acidic digestive systems, this group does not encounter any difficulty in digesting the decaying and dead animals.Vultures are terrestrial birds known to be found in a variety of different habitats from forests to savannas, shrub lands to grasslands and may also include artificial terrestrial urban areas. The distribution of G. bengalensis ranges across Pakistan, India, Nepal, Bhutan, Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and southern Vietnam. The map in Figure 1 defines the population distribution range of G bengalensis in South Asia.
