Slender-billed Vulture (ត្មាតត្នោត) resides in the Northern Plains of Cambodia with some seen along the Mekong River. The rapid decline of this species is a result of a result of residues of the anti-inflammatory drug diclofenac used to treat domestic livestock. A large part of the population now relies on the Supplemental Feeding Program at Beong Toal Vulture Restaurant. This is organised by the Wildlife Conservation Society Cambodia (WCS).
