Habitat Improvement And Conservation Breeding Of Great Indian Bustard: An Integrated Approach

The populations of the Great Indian Bustard in India have been steadily declining due to threats of habitat loss. The largest population of about 150 birds occurs in Thar Desert, Rajasthan while much smaller populations occur in Gujarat, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra. The team CAMPA-GIB of Wildlife Institute of India in collaboration with State Governments, local NGOs and other research organizations are trying to pool knowledge and ensure effective conservation action through integrative methods like research, conservaton breeding, education and habitat management.
