The despised stork

A baby marabou stork at Makerere University in Kampala.

The marabou stork of Africa isn’t much to look at — it’s large, ungainly, and bald like a vulture, with a nasty appetite for carrion. The bird’s worked up the frustration — and even ire — of many Ugandans. But Lilian Twanza is encouraging her community to take a different stance. This story comes from the audio series One Species at a Time, and it is scheduled to air on PRI’s Living on Earth.
