4 Kilometer 'Life Water' Project for Flamingos in Salt Lake

Environment, Urbanization and Climate Change Minister Murat Kurum, regarding the project of bringing flamingo chicks in Salt Lake together with water, said, “We are carrying water with tankers to flamingos in Salt Lake, which is under the influence of drought. As a continuation of this sensitivity, we have taken another step towards a permanent solution. We started uninterrupted water transfer to the bird nursery area by laying a 4-kilometer pipeline from Gölyazı Neighborhood. We are working hard not to lose even a single pup with our work.'' He said.

The Ministry of Environment, Urbanization and Climate Change took a series of measures to prevent flamingo deaths due to climate change-related drought in Salt Lake, a Special Environmental Protection Area. The ministry first supplied water to the area with tankers so that the brooding area would not be dehydrated until the flamingo chicks reached the flight puberty. Then he accelerated the work of water transfer with pipes for a permanent solution. The Ministry, which also received the opinion of scientists, started to transfer life water to flamingos by laying 4-kilometer pipes from the water source in Gölyazı Neighborhood, which is close to the region.

Flamingos that come to Salt Lake in March spend their incubation period until mid-June. Afterwards, they feed their young here until they reach flight puberty. They migrate at the end of August.

''With the measures taken, Salt Lake will continue to be a flamingo paradise''

Emphasizing that they have taken every precaution to preserve the extinction of flamingos, the Minister Kurum said, “We are carrying water with tankers to the flamingos in Salt Lake, which is under the influence of drought. As a continuation of this sensitivity, we have taken another step towards a permanent solution. We started uninterrupted water transfer to the bird nursery area by laying a 4-kilometer pipeline from Gölyazı Neighborhood. We try all the ways with the work we do, we work hard not to lose even a single pup. Hopefully, with this solution, Salt Lake will continue to be a flamingo paradise.” used the phrases.

The Minister Institution also thanked the Konya Metropolitan Municipality, which carries water with tankers for life water to the flamingo cubs in Tuz Gölü, and the Cihanbeyli Municipality, which supported the pipes to reach Salt Lake from Gölyazı District, for their efforts.
