Vultures play an important role in the functioning of our environment and it is our responsibility to protect them. One of the ways to protect vultures is to feed them fresh, poison-free and lead-free meat from carcasses at a regulated Vulture Restaurant. The CL Woolcott Vulture Restaurant is regulated by a board of experts including Veterinarians who helps us regulate and monitor the carcasses fed at the feeding site.
The purpose of the restaurant is to serve as and education hub for schools and local communities. It further forms part of our wider scientific research and conservation projects and it will afford the general public the opportunity to get up close and personal with vultures and other raptor species.
The restaurant commemorates a dear friend, co-founder and nature lover, Chris Woolcott who tragically passed away in a motor vehicle accident in November 2014.The CL Woolcott Vulture Restaurant officially started operating on 5 September 2015.
This project is a joint project initiated by Kanabo Conservation Link, Kalahari Research & Conservation Group and Raptors Botswana.
