'The Gift' portrays a painting of an African Lappet-faced Vulture couple. Conservationists say the species is vital to the African ecosystem and we should do everything possible to prevent their extinction. With permission from the gifted photographer, Munib A. Chaudry, I painted this vulture couple to spotlight this sometimes overlooked bird. Of course, I find these birds quite beautiful. However, most people lack much compassion for the vulture. Most importantly these birds are a “biological recycling team,” preventing the spread of diseases between animals and humans. Our support for these unsung heroes is vital, says conservationist Roger Safford.
