La Cité des Immortels
The white stork
This large stork strongly resembles our own European White Stork but its beak is black and more massive : above all, it is much rarer, even in danger of extinction. Only 1,000 to 2,500 birds are thought to be left in the wild.
It lives in the wet regions between the North of China and Siberia and migrates towards the south as the great cold approaches.
Its diet is carnivorous but very varied, like that of our European White Stork. But it lives more remote to human beings.
The Oriental White Stork also used to live in Japan and Korea but it has disappeared from those countries because of hunting and the destruction of its habitat.
Pairi Daiza is taking part in a reproduction project with 120 animals currently kept in zoos : being able to admire them here is therefore exceptional.
The goal is to breed these beautiful birds in captivity and to reintroduce them in Japan.
