    Singapore is a country that prides itself enormously on its public cleanliness. I suppose it could take a leaf from the book of the French by training its birds to clean up its  streets. Laughing

    French theme park deploys birds to collect litter

    A theme park in France is set to deploy six “intelligent” birds to pick up rubbish and spruce up the grounds.


    The rooks at the Puy du Fou theme park in the west of the country have been taught to collect cigarette ends and other small bits of rubbish.

    They then deposit the litter into a small box which will deliver some bird food as a reward for their hard work.
