Adopt a flamingo
If you decide to adopt a flamingo, you’ll support a network of observers at the scale of the Mediterranean area.
By adopting a flamingo, you’ll participate actively to the study and protection of flamingoes by financing equipments.
The rings reading, put on the feet of the flamingoes, is difficult and sometimes very hard due to the bad quality of our equipments. For example, a basic pair of binoculars allows to read a flamingo ring within 50 meters, which is very rare. However with a telescope, observations and readings could be efficient as far as 300 meters.
If you adopt a flamingo, we will send you, by email, regular updates of the movements of your flamingo.
How much will it cost to you?
