Conservation Policy

We develop policy recommendations for bustard conservation that are founded on scientific research and effective in the local cultural and economic context.

Key Achievements

  • Led efforts to increase conservation of the Great Bustard in Asia via the Convention on Migratory Species. In 2014 we worked with the Government of Mongolia to successfully advance a proposal to heighten the level of protection afforded to the Great Bustard by the Convention globally. In 2017, we again partnered with the Government of Mongolia to initiate a three-year period of Concerted Action for the Great Bustard in Asia.
  • Organized a conference that brought together researchers and representatives of conservation organizations from nine countries to develop strategies for the conservation of the Great Bustard conservation across Asia.
  • Contributed to the designation of seven Great Bustard sites in Central Asia as Bird Life International Important Bird Areas (IBAs), e.g. Selenge-Teel.
