White-headed Vulture

#

White-headed Vulture (Trigonoceps occipitalis); the most hunted of all Zambian vultures- there is a very high demand for the head of this vulture for use in traditional medicines, witchcraft and making charms. The trade is known to occur in Zambia, Congo, Malawi and Tanzania but it is possible that it occurs with more countries particularly in central, west and southern Africa.
