Thousands of flamingos discovered dead in Turkey

Published 1 year ago

A huge number of flamingos were discovered dead on the dry bed of Turkey's Lake Tuz, disturbing naturalists and inciting specialists to explore what caused the mass passings. 

Drone footage from the above showed many flamingos part of the way covered in dried pieces of Lake Tuz, in Turkey's focal region of Konya. The underlying examination showed the flamingos were not harmed, Turkish Minister of Agriculture and Forestry, Bekir Pakdemirli, told journalists, adding somewhere in the range of 1,000 flaminglets were among the birds that kicked the bucket. 

Earthy people said the passings originated from the agrarian water system rehearses in the area, alongside the repercussions of environmental change and dry season. 

As per a report distributed by Turkish natural establishment TEMA in 2020, the yearly water hold in focal region of Konya's nearby bowl was 4.5 billion cubic meters, while the utilization arrived at 6.5 billion cubic meters. Preservationist and untamed life photographic artist Fahri Tunc said the channel that was worked to convey water to Lake Tuz is diverted for farming water system. 

"This is the water system channel that comes from Konya. It needs to convey water to Lake Tuz. As should be obvious, the water isn't coming through. It halted," Tunc said. As indicated by measurements, around 5,000 to 10,000 flaminglets are brought into the world in Lake Tuz consistently during the incubating season. 

Tunc said, for the current year, just 5,000 eggs have incubated and a large portion of the birds passed on while looking for water on the outside of in part dried lake. 

Leader of Nature Association, Dicle Tuba Kilic said the best way to forestall mass flamingo passings is to change the agrarian water system strategies in locale. 

Pakdemirli said the passings are not identified with the water system rehearses in the locale.
