PHNOM PENH Homme Off White x Air Jordan 1 The Ten Blanche Noir Rouge Pas Cher , Sept. 4 (Xinhua) -- Cambodia's vultures are facing a high risk of extinction and have seen a 50 percent decline in number since 2003, conservationist groups said in a joint statement on Monday.

"Only 121 of the birds were recorded in this year's national census, the lowest number on record since 2003," said the joint statement released by Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), BirdLife International Homme Off White x Nike Air Jordan 1 Noir Royal Bleu Pas Cher , World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), and Angkor Center for Conservation of Biodiversity.

"Recent reviews indicate that poisoning is the major threat to the vulture population in Cambodia," the statement said.

With global populations declining at an alarming rate, Cambodia's three vulture species, namely Red-headed (Sarcogyps calvus) Off White x Nike Air Max 97 Blanche Pas Cher , Slender-billed (Gyps tenuirostris), and White-rumped (Gyps bengalensis), are all listed on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List as critically endangered.

"Poisoning is probably the biggest threat to Cambodia's vultures, and it's bad for human health as well," said Simon Mahood Off White x Nike Air Max 97 Noir Pas Cher , WCS's senior technical advisor.

"Strong efforts from government, conservation NGOs and local communities are required to save these vulture species," he said.

Other threats to Cambodia's vultures include habitat loss and food shortages caused by low numbers of wild ungulates and domestic cattle, the statement said, adding that increased levels of forest loss also negatively impact the birds through loss of nesting sites and reduction in prey availability.

"In addition Off White x Nike Blazer Studio Mid The Ten Blanche Pas Cher , at least 30 vultures were killed over the past five years in Cambodia due to widespread indiscriminate use of deadly poisons by villagers across Cambodia, which is severely impacting the vulture population and threatening human lives too," the statement said.

Bou Vorsak, BirdLife's program manager, said 10 years of conservation action has not stopped the decline.

"This year's census result is extremely worrying Off White x Nike Air Force 1 Low The Ten Blanche Pas Cher , significant numbers of Cambodia's vultures now only remain in Chhep and Siem Pang Kang Lech Wildlife Sanctuaries," he said.

In an effort to save this critically endangered bird in Cambodia, the conservationist groups have periodically fed the birds with dead domestic cattle and routinely protected their nests and habitats.

Ny Naiky, coordinator of Cambodia Vulture Conservation Project, said vultures are very important birds that help clean up environment Off White X Air Max 90 Ice Trainers Blanche Pas Cher , control the spread of diseases and bacteria, and generate sustainable income to local communities through eco-tourism.

"I would encourage everyone to help conserve vultures by not purchasing or eating wild meat. Eating poisoned meat is bad for health," the coordinator added.
