On 3 April 2016, Kasetsart University Raptor Rehabilitation Unit and Thailand Department of National Parks and Wildlife released 2 Himalayan Vultures at Thai-Myanmar border in Chiang mai province. The site is on migration route of the species which 10-30 birds pass through every winter since 2007.
The vultures are metal banded on right tarsus and aged as second CY. Our previous genetic and satellite-tagging studies on released vultures since the first release in 2007 suggest that they may have originated from the Himalayas.
