In a bid to save Southeast Asia's dwindling population of the birds, Cambodia has created what they call 'vulture restaurants', where specially carved carcasses are laid out for the scavengers.
The so-called restaurants are the latest step in a programme to save the three species of the bird that have been nearly wiped out throughout Asia.
In Cambodia the birds of prey suffer from a lack of game due to poaching and habitat destruction.
In other parts of the continent, the scavengers are dying from widespread use of the anti-inflammatory drug diclofenac in farming
The presence of just one per cent of the drug in a carcass can kill the birds, whose diet is exclusively the meat of dead animals.
