Flamingoes’ Flight Path Secured in Khuzestan

Flamingoes’ Flight Path Secured in Khuzestan

Following the deaths of 18 flamingoes migrating to Shadegan Wetland after colliding with power lines two weeks ago, officials at the Khuzestan Electric Power Distribution Company have moved to make the migratory birds’ flight route safer.
Speaking to IRNA, Seyyed Ahmad Mousavi Azadi, the head of the provincial Department of Environment, said contrary to what has been reported, the birds did not die of electrocution.
“Injuries suffered as a result of collision with the power lines is the cause of death,” he said.
To avoid such a recurrence, power officials have marked the lines to make power lines more visible to birds.
“Red and white markers have been installed, which should make it easier for the flamingoes to spot the power lines,” he said.
Fitting cables with devices to make them more visible to birds in flight is a common method worldwide.
An estimated 6,000 to 7,000 adult flamingoes are spending the summer at Shadegan Wetland.
