As a part of "The Konkan Vulture Project" Sahyadri has started vulture survey of the entire Konkan where two Vulture species, the Oriental white-backed vulture (Gyps bengalensis) and Long billed vulture (Gyps indicus) can be seen. Of these two species Oriental white Backed Vultures nest on Cocous nucifera (coconut) trees.
The long billed vultures nest on cliffs. Through the eMagazine "Sahyadri - Kana Maharashtracha" an appeal has been made to all the trekkers to report any information they can seek from the villagers. With good reader base Sahyadri hopes to reach many trekkers through this eMagazine and connect more people with the vulture conservation.
