Abstract: Vultures are among the fastest declining species in the world and much attention has been focused on this highly threatened group of scavengers. In south Asia, sites, where multiple vulture species occur together, have become a rare phenomenon. Here we report on Gadchiroli Forest Division in Maharashtra, central India, which holds a sizable population of vultures. The forest department aims to provide food for vultures and to improve their survival through the establishment of vulture restaurants. The present report describes the recording of three vulture species in the forest division, namely Long-billed Gyps indicus, Oriental White-backed Gyps bengalensis, and Griffon Gyps fulvus ssp. fulvescens Vultures.
