Important Great Bustard wintering grounds in Uzbekistan

A new publication [pdf] in the journal “Geography, Environment, Sustainability” highlights the importance of wintering grounds in Uzbekistan to the survival of the Central Asian population of Great Bustards.

The surveys conducted by Dr Roman Kashkarov, Anna Ten, Yuliya Mitropolskaya and Valentin Soldatov form part of the Eurasian Bustard Alliance’s coordinated, transboundary winter censuses.
