ECOLOGISTS in Ronda have appealed for ‘immediate action’ after discovering two dead vultures and an eagle, all electrocuted by high voltage electricity lines.
The birds were found on the Ronda La Vieja road said wildlife protection group, Ecologists in Action.
A spokesperson for the group said: “The birds we found were adults and in breeding season, which could hinder the survival of their young.
“If only one parent is left to care for their young the young birds often don’t survive.”
They added: “We want something done as soon as possible to make sure this doesn’t happen again as these birds are very rare and precious.”
All the birds were found a few metres from each other and now an investigation is being carried out to see how it can be prevented in the future.
The ecologists have appealed to the Ministry of the Environment for the power lines to be covered with plastic sheething.
