Description

Explore the essential role vultures play in cleaning our ecosystems and why their conservation is key to a healthy planet.

--

In the African grasslands, a gazelle suffering from tuberculosis takes its last breath. The animals corpse threatens to infect the water, but for the vulture, this isnt a problem: its a feast. With a stomach of steel that can digest diseased meat and waste, vultures are essential to removing dangerous pathogens from ecosystems. Kenny Coogan explores the importance of the deserts cleanup crew.

Lesson by Kenny Coogan, directed by Mali Mamut.
