Three Himalayan griffon vultures were released back to the wild at Doi Pha Hom Pok National Park in Chiang Mai's Mae Ai district on Friday.

Officials from the Department of National Park, Wildlife and Plant Conservation's Wildlife Conservation Bureau, accompanied by bird expert Chaiyan Kasorndorkbua from Kasetsart University, released the three vultures at the Doi San Ju viewpoint. 

The three vultures had landed in Thailand due to exhaustion and malnutrition in January and were unable to fly. 

The male vulture, nicknamed Pabuk, fell on January 7 in Krabi's Khao Phanom area, the female vulture, nicknamed Long Krung, fell on January 20 in Bangkok's Nong Khaem district and another female vulture, nicknamed Chiangrai, fell on January 30 in Chiang Rai's Thoeng district.
