Some of them we may lose forever

Scientists have warned of the danger of extinction of some representatives of Ukraine's birdlife, which are particularly affected by the hostilities.

This was reported by Konstantin Yalovoy, a public figure and initiator of the Kyiv Environmental Strategy, citing the opinion of scientists.

Fires, explosions, and forests destroyed as a result of the hostilities have forced birds to look for new nesting sites.

According to experts, large birds suffer the most from the war because they are too attached to their homes. Small birds have it easier: they are mobile and can find a place to nest quite easily.

Steppe birds are a particularly vulnerable category. Scientists warn that they may disappear from the territory of Ukraine and not return, or return in much smaller quantities. After all, the Ukrainian steppes are currently largely in the war zone or under occupation.

According to scientists, a situation is not excluded when birds will have to be resettled from the territories where they survived to the territory of their former range. This process is very complex, but may be necessary to maintain balance in the ecosystem.

Despite the war and shelling, flew to Ukraine for nesting pink flamingos . But due to shelling and the human factor, they are still "wandering" through the National Natural Park "Tuzlivski lymani" in search of a safe and quiet place to breed chicks.

Last year, EcoPolitic published photos of these exotic birds in Odesa,.
