Northern Bald Ibis

The Northern Bald Ibis (Geronticus eremita) is a critically endangered migratory species as per the IUCN Red List, with a remaining population in Turkey, Syria, and Morocco. Formerly, the population of the Northern Bald Ibis had been spread over Northern Africa and the Middle East. The rapid decrease in its population over the years is owed to unidentified natural causes, as well anthropogenic causes that affected the Northern Bald Ibis mainly through hunting, loss of habitat, and poisoning from contamination with pesticides.
