If you find dead birds

On Svalbard, several birds have recently been found to have died of bird flu. Do not touch dead birds. The Governor requests that people who find dead birds or observe birds with abnormal behaviour, sends information to the Governor at firmapost@sysselmesteren.no. with position on where the bird(s) are found and a picture if possible.

It is very rare that humans are infected with bird flu, but one should avoid touching sick or dead birds.
