馬島潛鴨原本棲息於馬達加斯加的濕地,但因砍伐森林、捕魚及農業發展等因素,令牠們的失去家園,只可在餘下的唯一濕地棲身。可惜這個濕地水位太深,小鴨根本無法覓食,大多活了2-3星期便餓死了,導致牠們面臨滅絕,在野外只餘下約25隻。有保育團體正想辦法另覓新家園,希望能助牠們延續下一代。

madagascar pochards used to live in wetlands in Madagascar. due to human activities like deforestation, farming and fishing, there is only one remaining wetland that the birds could stay. however, this wetland is too deep for the young ducklings to five for food, and 96% of the ducklings die at 2-3 weeks old. there are only around 25 madagascar pochards in the wild. conservationists are now looking for a suitable wetland for these rare ducks, hoping to help them find a new home.
