As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Bird conservation: Learning about vultures and how to protect them


Children from several public schools participated in an event organised by the World Wide Fund-Pakistan (WWF) on Saturday to create awareness about conservation of vultures.

The event was held at the Lahore Zoo. It included screening of a 40-minute documentary titled Missing Vultures. The documentary was produced by Ali Ejaz and funded by the WWF.

There were several gaming competitions to educate students about vulture conservation and a lucky draw in which four families won a free visit in November to the WWF’s Vulture Conservation Centre at Changa Maanga.
