The shocking effects of power distribution on Saker Falcons in the Mongolian steppes Young falcons are particularly susceptible to electrocution. Also the sex of electrocuted adult Sakers suggests a possible male-biased sex ratio among adult Saker Falcons in Mongolia. Consequently, the electrocution threatens the long term survival of the species in one of its last remaining strongholds.
Mongolia's young but burgeoning bird ringing stations Our biologists are building a network of bird ringing stations in the country. We believe there is a huge potential for this network of ringing stations to contribute to science, conservation, and society in Mongolia.
Researchers to discuss future of Anatidae species in East Asia During last 3 years, since the First International Symposium on Developing Effective Coordinated Monitoring of East Asia Waterbirds in the 21st Century was held in 2017, in Hulun Lake National Nature Reserve, Inner Mongolia, China, researchers have deployed over 2600 GPS trackers to advance our knowledge on migratory waterbirds in East Asia. It is a marvelous collaborative effort led by and executed by dedicated group of scientists in East Asia.
Electrocution on medium voltage powerlines Thousands of birds of prey including the iconic saker falcons are electrocuted across Mongolia on powerlines. Researchers fight to stop the killing and find solution
Mongolia's contribution to save white-naped cranes in Asia The Mongolian government has designated the Khurkh and Khuiten River Valleys as a national-level Nature Reserve. This new Nature Reserve will cover a 193,592-hectare area. The site is home to several species of cranes including the White-naped cranes.
Cuckoos - the ambassadors for science and environmental education Five cuckoos were fitted with transmitters in Khurkh Valley. The birds have been named by local schools who will follow “their” birds to learn about the migration route and wintering grounds of cuckoos.
