Bolina Booms has provided a boom in Annecy, France, to save chicks from drowning.
Following 30 million hits on social media concerning the drowning of chicks at a highly visible weir in France, it was decided by the authorities to install one of our PDB600 debris booms upstream. Apparently the chicks are more than happy to be classified as debris now that they can quack in safety!
The issue was captured on social media:
Prisonnier par le courant du Thiou à #Annecy (74), ce bébé cygne va être heureusement sauvé par l’intervention vitale d’un passant.
Grâce à lui, maman cygne – très protectrice – a pu retrouver son petit sain et sauf !???????????? pic.twitter.com/sbvZSOHjHv
