Takeaways:

  • The community of Nuevo Bécal in Mexico’s Campeche state has dedicated 427 hectares of land as a sanctuary for the king vulture.
  • The king vulture is 31 inches tall and weighs up to 30 pounds and prevails over other scavenging birds.
  • The decision to preserve this area is because the vultures prefer to stop to rest on native trees species and away from the presence of humans and close to bodies of water.
