Operations are continuing to collect the bird carcasses that litter the beaches of the archipelago as a result of the avian influenza epidemic that affects gannets in particular.

In the last two weeks, a little more than 2500 birds have been recovered from almost 80 km of beach.

The second phase of the coastal clean-up is coordinated by the Maritime Community and funded by the Ministry of the Environment and the Fight against Climate Change.

The first phase of the operation, which was under the direct responsibility of the Ministry, resulted in the collection of more than 1,000 carcasses on the territory.

Furthermore, citizens are invited to visit the Municipality of the Islands’ website to learn about the instructions to follow for the safe disposal of remains found on private property.

It is also recommended to avoid all bare-handed contact with sick or dead animals, under all circumstances.
