  • Meet Ruby, Audubon's Turkey Vulture
  • Compare your “wingspan” to that of an Andean Condor’s silhouette
  • Make a crafted vulture and mask
  • Learn fun vulture facts
  • Figure out the differences between Old and New World vultures
  • Discover why vultures are important
  • Make a pledge to help protect vultures
