rare bird in Syria

Only two pairs of bald ibis are known in the Middle East, both in Syria.




  1. Since the number of these birds is small, I would like to know what these scientists would do when they find them.
    Is it safe to leave them in the wild where many illegal hunting actions take place, or is it better to imprison them which prevent these birds from completing their journey?

  2. By two pairs, do you mean exactly four birds? If so, then aren’t these birds practically extinct? I was wondering what these scientists could do to save the birds even if they could locate them. Also, if the scientists are able to track the birds by satellite, why can’t they find them?
