Conservationists are caring for 2,000 flamingo chicks that were abandoned by their parents in a dried-out dam in South Africa. According to, harsh summer heat and a reported lack of water being pumped into the dam caused water to drop to low levels. It's unclear why this caused the flamingo parents to abandon their chicks. Currently, they're being looked after at the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds in Cape Town. They're being fed liquified mixture of sardines, shrimp, eggs, and porridge, until they're healthy enough to return to the wild. “These chicks arrived in a very bad condition since a lot of them were dehydrated, they were tiny — some of them were just coming out of their eggs — so we had a little bit of a problem with infections,” Katta Ludynia, the research manager at SANCCOB, told CNN.
