Mozart and Coltrane, the Dirty Ibis duo from Gold Coast, are ecstatic. After 400-years, rare White Australian Ibis relatives return to European skies

Photo by WALDRAPPTEAM excerpts from story by Christian Schwagerl – A tiny remnant of Waldrapp or Northern Bald Ibis population in Syria, numbering seven individuals, was discovered in 2002. But that population dwindled to a single bird in 2014, and an expert on the northern bald ibis in the Middle East says the bird is now extinct in Syria, with the civil war acting as “the classic straw that broke the camel’s back.”

“Ibis again are the innocent victims. This time of war in Syria. That’s why wars should be banned,” says Mozart.

“The people who start wars should be shot,” says Coltrane.

Now, however, several northern bald ibis reintroduction projects are underway, which explains why the waldrapp (Geronticus eremita) can once again be seen flying at the northern fringe of the Alps — a habitat it last occupied nearly 400 years ago.

Giant Ibis is Cambodia’s national bird

5 Jan

Giant Ibis went off the map for 50 years until the Wildlife Conservation Society rediscovered them in Cambodia in 1993.

WCS website says – The Critically Endangered giant ibis is the largest ibis in the world, twice the size of the second largest ibis species. This avian mega-faunal relict requires huge tracts of intact lowland deciduous forest. It is shy by nature, feeding in secluded forest pools far from villages. Unlike the other large waterbirds of Cambodia’s Northern Plains, the giant ibis breeds in the wet season, when it feeds on giant earthworms, eels, and frogs. It once ranged over much of mainland Southeast Asia, but the clearance of forest habitat for agriculture has restricted it to just northern and eastern Cambodia.

WCS is working with the Cambodian government and local communities to protect the ibis and have come up with ibis rice to feed it.6mpi04uvdv_giant_ibis_eb_card
