Ostafrika – Zentrum der rastlosen Zwergflamingos

  • Lothar Krienitz
Chapter

Zusammenfassung

Ostafrika ist das Kernland des Zwerflamingos. Hier ist er ständig unterwegs, auf der Suche nach Nahrungs- und Brutgebieten. Am Natronsee bringt er die Mehrzahl seiner Nachfahren zur Welt. In den Soda- und Kraterseen des Großen Afrikanischen Grabenbruchs, findet er die dichtesten Populationen seiner Nahrungsalgen. Doch auf Grund klimatischer Einflüsse und der Übernutzung durch den Menschen sind die Lebensräume des Zwergflamingos einem dramatischen Wandel ausgesetzt, der die Zukunft des enigmatischen Vogels gefährdet. Im Zeitraum 2001-2015 haben wir die wichtigsten Flamingogewässer untersucht und die spannungsgeladenen Beziehungen zwischen Mensch und Natur dokumentiert. Der Zwergflamingo ist ein Kristallisationspunkt im Umgang des Menschen mit seinen Naturreichtümern in dieser pulsierenden Region Afrikas, deren Bevölkerung um 2-3 Prozent pro Jahr wächst.
