Research on cinereous vulture to be conducted in Mongolia

AKIPRESS.COM - The cinereous vulture, which is considered the largest of the birds of prey, has been classified as "endangered" according to the Red List of Threatened Species of the International Union for Conservation of Nature, the UB Post reports. The bird plays an important role in various ecosystems by eating carcasses, which in turn reduces the spread of diseases.

The main grazing area of the cinereous vulture in Mongolia is the Ugtam Nature Reserve located across the Bayandun and Dashbalbar districts of Dornod Province. The Mongolian Bird Conservation Center and the Eastern Mongolia Strictly Protected Area Administration have jointly started a study in the area to determine the migration of the endangered vulture.

It was determined in advance that adult vultures stay in their breeding areas for the winter, while young birds reach North Korea, the border region of China, and Vladivostok which is the southeastern part of Russia in the cold season.

Mongolia took Ugtam Nature Reserve, which is located in Bayandun and Dashbalbar districts, under special protection as a natural reserve in 1993. The research will determine whether the ecosystem of this area, which is an important region for migratory birds, is still friendly to the birds, what problems the birds are facing in their habitat, and how their migration routes have changed.
