The Greater Adjutant is among the rarest stork species in the world, only found in India and Cambodia. They are scavenger birds and play a crucial role in maintaining healthy ecosystems. The bird is critically endangered, with only ~ 1,200 individuals remaining worldwide. Unfortunately, Greater Adjutants are threatened given the steady decline of their wetland habitats worldwide due to pollution and rapid urbanisation. In India, a third of their population survives on garbage dumps on the outskirts of Guwahati, Assam.
