Vikoma are Swan Heroes
Vikoma has donated a boom to protect swans against slipping into a reservoir. The swans and their cycnets at Dunoon's Bishops Glen reservoir in Scotland were belly flopping into the reservoir but can now swim safely thanks to Vikoma and a team of volunteers looking after them.
Managing Director, Karen Lucas said, "Vikoma will be 50 yeras old this year and this is the first time our boom has been used for stopping swans leaping in to a reservoir. Our products usually protects birds and the environment from Oil Spills, but there have been some other novel uses in the past. There include stopping Jelly Fish getting into water intakes, beaches and resports, preventing debris obstructing a Kayak race course and stopping rubbish gettig into canals.
