How to use "Genus pandion" in context?

The 'genus' Pandion contains 19 species of which six occur in North America. A number of these species are rare, endangered, or threatened with extinction. The American turkey vulture, for example, is now considered critically endangered ( faces a high chance of extinction in the near future). Predation by humans and other animals is a major threat to these birds.

Interestingly, the genus was once thought to only contain two species - the American turkey vulture and the Old World vulture. However, research has shown that there are in fact six species within the genus.
