Zino's Petrel Disaster
This morning I got an urgent appeal from BirdLife International. A massive forest fire on the island of Madeira recently killed a number of the Endangered Zino's Petrel--including several breeding adults and 65% of this year’s (2010) chicks. BirdLife International and SPEA (Birdlife in Portugal) urgently need funds to carry out emergency conservation work needed before the winter sets in.
For more info and how to help, see the BirdLife International story here.
