Avian Flu safeguards at Fota Wildlife Park November 2022

As part of mitigation measures to prevent the spread of avian influenza/bird flu and to protect the various bird species at Fota Wildlife Park, several safeguards have been put in place on the advice of the Department of Agriculture, Food, and the Marine.

Several bird species have been moved off display, such as the White-tailed Sea eagle, and some species such as waterfowl have been isolated in pens. The duck feeder is closed until further notice. These measures have been taken to reduce the risk of avian influenza/bird flu spreading from migratory birds to the captive populations in Fota Wildlife Park.

These measures will remain in place until further notice.
