More info: In 1974, there were only 11 pairs of storks left in France and 9 of those were in Alsace in the east of the country.

Alsace used to have the most white storks, but today it is the area with the second-largest concentration as numbers have increased in the west of France. This growth in stork population is due to ah abundance of invasive American crayfish. These American crayfish have done great damage to the native crayfish - they live in the marshes in the west and provide a great source of food for the storks in n area which is an ideal breeding Ground.
