Threat to Lesser Flamingo breeding site in South Africa

Kamfers Dam near Kimberly has just seen its first Flamingo breeding event - on a man-made island specially built for the flamingos. It has become one of only six Lesser Flamingo breeding sites in the world.

The site (as a site for falmingo breeding) is now under threat from development; see www.savetheflamingo.co.za for more info, and to sign a petition.
