White-rumped and slender-billed vultures feed at a vulture "restaurant" in northern Cambodia. These eateries are part of a Wildlife Conservation Society project that provides a safe food source to the endangered birds while aiding the monitoring of vulture populations. As Saturday marked the first International Vulture Awareness Day, Cambodia recorded an increase in vulture numbers despite their rapid decline elsewhere. Cambodia remains one of the last strongholds for several critically endangered vulture species.
