Modderfontein Conservation Society will host a talk on January 17 about vultures and what is being done to conserve the birds.

“I was amazed by the stories of the pilots who had flown over the Skeerpoort Cape Vulture colony and were joined in the air by hundreds of vultures, and it soon was a dream to fly with the vultures,” Laura said.

She fulfilled this dream and continues to do so.

Visitors are welcome to attend the talk at Modderfontein Town Hall at 7.30pm.

An entrance fee of R30 is charged to help cover expenses.
