Bird flu has contributed to a failed reproductive year for the Dalmatian Pelicans in the National Park of Divjaka-Karavasta.

The park director, Ardian Koci, said that as a result of bird flu the colony of reproductive birds in the location known as the Island of the Pelican, has been disrupted.

“So far, the number of deaths in our colony is only around 3, but the reproductive process this year was completely destroyed. This is because the entire colony was disrupted due to the bird flu which resulted in a large number of birds leaving their nests,” said Koci.

Is there any hope left?

“We hope we can defend the essence of the colony which means our reproductive birds so that they can try again next year. This is where the majority of our work will be focused on in order to rescue this colony,” – added Koci.

The Dalmatian Pelican is a rare bird species that has formed a colony in our country in the location known as the Pelican Island in the Divjaka-Karavasta Lagoon.
