Avian Flu

I read some good news this weekend, with scientific evidence that sea birds are starting to develop some immunity to avian flu.

As many of you will know, we have been planting labradorite emu eggs, programmed to strengthen immunity to all in their wake to sites of nesting seabirds across Orkney, over the last fourteen months, in response to this devastating disease. 

Writing this I have felt prompted to extend this work to the main nesting sites of Great Skua’s here in Orkney as their numbers have plummeted recently as a result of this disease.

If you would like to contribute to this work in your own area, please get in touch. We are currently sponsoring five programmed crystals for planting for this purpose for the cost of postage and packaging.
