Birds in serious decline at Lake Constance


Recommended Posts

Within 30 years, the bird population around Lake Constance declined with increasing rapidity.

These are the findings of a study carried out by researchers from the Ornithological Working Group at Lake Constance and the Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior.

The numbers of many other species are too small for survival and their habitats in the Lake Constance region are shrinking.
