Bald Ibis-Project

Since several years the re-introduction of the Bald Ibis has been prepared in Austria. The Bald Ibis is an ibis species which had gone extinct in Austria in the 18th century. The Bald Ibis only can survive in Austria as a migratory bird. But as a migratory route is not given by birth, the birds have to learn their migratory route and get to know their wintering grounds during their first migration. This is where the microlight aircraft method comes into play. In 2004 the first flight from Austria to the wintering grounds in Italy was carried out successfully.
