Ankara, Dec 31: The unusual and very efficient whistle language used as a means of communication by villagers in remote northern Turkey entered the Unesco list of Intangible Cultural Heritage. Unesco has accepted the “bird language” of Black Sea villagers as an endangered part of world heritage in need of urgent protection, Xinhua news agency reported on Sunday. Around 10,000 people, mostly in the district of Cakci in Giresun province, still use the highly-developed and high pitch system of whistling to communicate in the rugged terrain where most of the times they cannot see each other.
