Storks In Armenia Face a Massive Decline

For the past two months, the Artashat Police Department has been investigating the issue of oil-soaked white storks in the villages of Artashat and Masis.

Storks get completely covered with oil while they eat in the canal, which makes them unable to fly. Experts note that this year Armenia is losing a young generation of storks, nestlings, because they are mostly victims of the disaster.
