Seagulls are a protected species for a reason.

Seagulls were designated as an endangered species after their populations plummeted to dangerously low levels. Seagulls are migratory birds that lay their eggs in environmentally sensitive places. In North America and portions of Europe, seagulls are legally protected from harm.

When it comes to their classification as an endangered wildlife population, seagulls are lumped together with several other migratory bird species. Gulls, like other migrating birds, build their nests along the shore and near lakes. Migratory bird breeding sites are delicate, which implies that when breeding places are lost, bird populations suffer.

Seagulls are a protected bird species, but their numbers are increasing and they are becoming a nuisance in some urban areas. Gulls eat aquatic life, carrion, and leftover food leftovers wherever they can. When the birds cannot find enough food at sea or along the coast, they frequently seek food in surrounding towns and cities.

Because killing gulls is illegal, culling their flocks necessitates specific legal permission. Some government entities are utilising non-lethal and lethal ways to lower the gull population when necessary to preserve people’s health and safety.
