The Vulture Mothers: Abhorrent and Magnificent

The Vulture Mothers: Abhorrent and Magnificent is a multi-media documentary project that offers aesthetically pleasing and playfully presented information about vultures. The Vulture – a symbol of death and decay – is essential to the health of our ecosystems. Yet only as they have become endangered have scientists been able to convince the global public of their importance. With their extremely corrosive stomachs, vultures are unique in their capacity to eat diseased carrion without getting sick, and thus they halt the spread of rabies, anthrax, botulism, and other infections. No other known species can do this. Sadly, due to human activities, vultures are under threat of extinction across the planet. My aim in creating this work is to aid conservation groups as they work to rebuild healthy populations of this important species.
