Amongst the reasons for their declining numbers are fatal contacts with the many high voltage powerlines that criss-cross the country and exploitation by illegal muthi traders. Kerri manages a centre for vulture research and rehabilitation on a farm at the foot of the Magaliesberg, taking in sick and injured birds for recuperation, while at the same time conducting research into their habits and behaviour. Kerri wonders what it would be like to soar with these birds and is offered the opportunity to fly with a paraglider along the Magaliesberg escarpment. We join her on this unique trip, accompanied by a sky full of vultures – curious, unthreatened and playful – as they circle and glide against the spectacular backdrop of the multicoloured cliffs. “Being in the sky with them during sunset was a life-changing experience”.
