There is hope for the world's rarest bird... Also how will the new Sewage Treatment Plant at Iona affect birders?

The Madagascar Pochard was thought to be extinct after no one seeing it for 15 years but a small population was rediscovered and now captive birds are being released and there is renewed hope. Read the full story and watch the video about the birds and the incredible people who are helping them HERE.

There is a new Wastewater Treatment Plant being built at Iona. There is a public information session being held Wednesday, January 9, 2019 from 6 to 8:30 pm in the Auditorium at the Pacific Autism Family Network at 3688 Cessna Drive, Richmond. As us birders like to access this site it might be worth attending if you have any questions on how the new plant and land expansion will affect the birds and wildlife and any access to it.
