Issue :  Gyps Vulture or Asian Vulture is a group of five different vultures available in Asia, mainly in Indian Subcontinent. Over the last few decades there has been a catastrophic decline in the vulture population due to a man made drug. This steep decline has placed the breed of Asian vultures on the edge of extinction. Vulture has an immense importance in food cycle by finishing the dead carcasses.  We can save this great scavenger bird if we act more responsibly against the deadly drug which is the main cause of their abolition. We had almost 40 million vultures just a decade ago and now only around 4 thousands.

Attempt :  A film which would be used for awareness against the drug which is the main reason of the Vulture’s death and their abolition. This film will show the reason of the disappearance of the vultures from India and the importance of this great scavenger bird in nature. This film will also broadcast the relentless struggle of the vulture conservationists in India and this subcontinent to save the Asian Vultures (Gyps Vulture) from the blink of extinction against all odd. This is a complete awareness film; the awareness id the only key to save the vultures in India.
