  • Ikaros (26/09/2016)



Ikaros - is Egyptian vulture from Greece, hatched in 2012 and tagged with satellite transmitter. He was the first for 2012, who flew off to South. He flew over Athens, crossed the Peloponnese and reached the Southern coast of Greece - Crete. But then he made a wrong choice and tried to fly more than 300 km above the sea to the Egyptian coast. Unfortunately when the night fell he was in the middle of this epic journey. Exhausted, Ikaros perched on a ship and stayed there for 6 days. His last coordinates are 70 km from the coast then we lost the signal. Ikaros drowned before reaching the coast of Lybia.
