In this episode, I interview my good friend, Dr. Munir Virani. He's the Vice President for Conservation Strategy and External Affairs at The Peregrine Fund. We discuss Asian and African Vultures and why they are considered one of the most threatened groups of animals on the planet. Threats we cover include human/animal conflict, poisoning, poaching, and use on the black market. Dr. Virani also recounts his terrifying encounters with lions and a lone buffalo.
