Exclusive footage of ‘Tuluver’ Bird

The beautiful, newly ‘discovered’ bird species,  is actually a digitally-altered image of a Lappet-faced Vulture. The fictitious ‘Tuluver’ Bird was part of a campaign by Birdlife South Africa to draw attention to the plight of Africa’s vultures.

The PR stunt, was an effort to spotlight the importance of vulture conservation on the continent. "Africa's vultures are in serious trouble and they need urgent conservation attention and, for this reason, we decided to use a brave approach during our International Vulture Awareness Day awareness efforts," explains the group's CEO, Mark D. Anderson.
