New insights into Himalayan cranes
At the end of 2018 a cooperative project between NABU International, the Royal Society for the Protection of Nature and Crane Conservation Germany had started. With financial support of the Germany federal ministry for environment Black-necked Cranes (Grus nigrollis), which winter in Bhutan, have been studied for four years.
Now, at the end of the project, the final report with many new insights is published. It shows, for example, the amazing maximum flying altitude of 7.441 metres or that these cranes have individual preferences for roost and foraging sites, which remain over time. Moreover, some important recommendations for the conservation of these birds are developed. Interested? You can download the report here.
