Implement targeted awareness activities and sampling within at least a 100 kilometer radius and establish a 'vulture safe zone' in the Wayanad District, where a breeding population of vultures survives. Engage a network of indigenous communities, cattle owners and veterinarians to support implementation and monitoring of the ban on veterinary use of diclofenac and other drugs toxic to vultures.
