이상 700 세네갈 세계 문화 유산에서 발견 된 죽은 펠리컨

Dakar약간 750 수백만 철새의 피난처를 제공하는 세네갈 북부의 유네스코 세계 문화 유산에서 펠리컨이 죽은 채 발견되었습니다., the country’s parks director said.

Rangers found the pelicans on January 23 in the Djoudj bird sanctuary, a remote pocket of wetland near the border with Mauritania and a resting place for birds that cross the Sahara Desert into West Africa each year.
An unverified video published on local media showed hundreds of pelican carcasses scattered on a beach, muddy and darker than their normally eye-catching white.
We took some samples for screening and we hope in the near future to know what caused the death of the pelicans,” Bocar Thiam, director of Senegal’s parks, said in an interview.
    The sanctuary is a transit place for about 350 species of birds but only pelicans were found dead, 그는 말했다. Of those killed, 740 were juveniles and 10 were adults.
      Authorities have closed the park and ordered the incineration of the dead birds as a precaution.
      This month, Senegal reported an outbreak of the highly pathogenic H5N1 bird flu on a poultry farm in the Thies region about 120 miles south, resulting in the culling of about 100,000 chickens.
