Asian Vultures are dying out at an alarming rate. In the last decade, up to 99.9% of the population has disappeared making them more endangered than the Polar Bear - but it's the Vulture's unlovable reputation that's kept their plight out of the public eye.
Now, one man has made it his life's mission to bring the Vulture's imminent extinction to the world's attention. We follow Scott Mason's journey through a series of trials and tribulations as he battles the elements in the Himalayan mountains to bring his conservation message to the world.
Scott Mason realised that to compete for publicity in a world where sensation is king he needed to do something very different. He hit upon the idea of combining his lifelong love of Falconry with the extreme sport of Paragliding and thus invented Parahawking - flying with his rescued and rehabilitated Egyptian Vultures, interacting with the birds in their own environment.
Flight for Survival documents Scott's struggle to raise awareness of the Vulture's plight by undertaking his greatest challenge to date - a 10,000ft climb in the Himalayan Mountains to attempt the highest, longest, most challenging parahawking flight ever.
