Endangered birds tracked by conservationists are found poisoned
The birds, northern bald ibis, are thought to have fallen victim to poisons left out by farmers to kill rats.... The species numbered more than 6,000 in Turkey and Syria 50 years ago but development and the use of the farm chemical DDT is thought to have caused the collapse in numbers. It is thought that many of the young birds who disappear without trace fall victim to poisoning.
