Wild animals that had food shortages in severe winter conditions were not forgotten. The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry left 1400 tons of fodder to their natural habitats in the last two months.
The General Directorate of Nature Conservation and National Parks, affiliated to the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, provides tons of feed to the wildlife in order to prevent the wild animals and bird species that have food shortages especially in winter from starving in harsh winter conditions, to prevent them from descending to settlements and their relations with humans.
2100 TONS OF FEED WILL BE LEFT INTO NATURE IN THIS WINTER PERIOD
The teams affiliated to the Ministry continue their feeding activities with great effort so that the animals in the wild life do not starve, regardless of the cold and difficult terrain conditions this year, as every year.
In this context, 2021 tons of feed was left to the natural habitats in the 2022-1400 winter period, which started in mid-December. In this winter period, it is aimed to feed 2100 tons.
The areas where the bait is left are monitored with a camera, and it is also checked whether the study reaches its goal or not.
According to the images reflected in the camera, it is seen that many bird species, especially wild goat, red deer, wild boar, fox, jackal, come and eat the food left in these areas periodically.
INJURED ANIMALS ARE ALSO TREATED
In addition to its activities with feed, the ministry teams also carry out studies such as treatment and rehabilitation, production, resettlement, protection and support in nature for the restoration of the natural balance that has been deteriorated due to various environmental effects and human pressure, and the protection of wild animals that are in danger of extinction.
