Eastern Imperial Eagle electrocuted in Turkey

31. December 2012

Electrocution is still a serious threat to many raptors incl. both Imperial Eagle species, Bonelli’s Eagles and many other large birds like White Storks.

A Bulgarian Eastern Imperial Eagle named Krum recently died of electrocution in Turkey. The Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds tracks several Eastern Imperial Eagles to learn more about their behavior and mortality as part of a conservation program.

More information about the bird and also about the conservation efforts for the species in Bulgaria can be found here:
