Veterinarians and volunteers will scan the fire-stricken national park of Dadia at Evros, NE Greece, for injured animals as soon as the fire brigade allows it, said Deputy Minister of Environment &  Energy Giorgos Amiras on Thursday.

The minister was speaking after the safe removal of two chicks of the white-winged Egyptian vulture (Neophron percnopterus) from their nest in the the park by the Management Unit of Evros Delta & Dadia National Parks, of the ministry’s Natural Environment & Climate Change Agency (NECCA). Only five pairs of these rare vultures exist in Greece, it was noted, and all are in the same region of Thrace.

The young birds will be returned to their natural habitat when the fire brigade announces the wildfire, burning in the natural reserve for eight days, is fully extinguished.

Several animal and environmental NGOs as well as vets from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki’s veterinarian school have set up camp in the natural park to begin offering their services as soon as is feasible, it was added.

On Thursday, the fire brigade said that the fire has been almost contained.
