3 Cory’s Shearwaters were saved in II Open night

The last Open Night of Birds & Company in partnership with SPEA-Madeira, 5 enthusiastic people participated in the Rescue Campaign - Save Seabirds. 

Because seabirds are attracted and confused by the coastline lights when they leave the nests, this rescue squad patrolled the illuminated coastal areas, in Jardim do Mar and Paul do Mar. Two juveniles of Cory’s Shearwaters were saved in those areas.

The squad also had the sad opportunity to watch a juvenil of Cory’s Shearwater falling down in Madalena do Mar, rescuing it immediately. 

Once we had the chance to contact these seabirds, measures were taken and the birds were ringed for further studies.

Birds & Company would like to thanks SPEA-Madeira for the collaboration and partnership and all participants by their enthusiasm, interest and contribute in save seabirds. Keep doing!
