Winter Surveys for Great Bustard Across Central Asia

Great Bustards typically gather in larger groups on wintering grounds, offering a good opportunity to carry out a census of the regional population. From December 2018 to February 2019, Eurasian Bustard Alliance is working with the Association for Conservation of Biodiversity in Kazakhstan to coordinate winter surveys for the Central Asian population of Great Bustards in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. Financial support for the surveys is provided by National Geographic, and optical equipment by Celestron, Inc.
