Avian influenza/bird flu safeguards at Fota Wildlife Park

There have been a number of confirmed avian influenza/bird flu cases in various locations throughout Ireland.

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 a number of safeguards have been put in place on the advice of the Department of Agriculture, Food, and the Marine.

Several of the bird species have been moved indoors such as the Humboldt penguin and the Blue-throated macaw. Some waterfowl species have also been isolated. 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.

The birds will be returned to their habitats once the Department of Agriculture, Food, and the Marine advises it is safe to do so. We will notify visitors via our website when the birds at Fota Wildlife Park are back on view.
