Monitoring of White-headed Duck in 2014

2014-04-07 | Alyona Koshkina

Dear all,Last year Association for the Conservation of Biodiversity of Kazakhstan (ACBK) has started a project on identification of the conservation status of White-headed Duck in Kazakhstan. Our monitoring survey in present time covers Akmola, Kostanai and North Kazakhstan regions. We also collect data from other regions through many different sources, particularly from birds.kz. Thanks to this wonderful internet platform we have already collected much useful data.Using this opportunity we would like to ask all the members of birding society to provide us with more detailed information on the records of White-headed Duck in their regions (total number, exact coordinates, data on habitat, broods, etc.). If there are volunteers with their own transport, who wants to take a part in this research, you’re most welcome!Please contact us by emails: alena_shmalenko@mail.ru, alyona.shmalenko@acbk.kz, ruslan.urazaliyev@acbk.kz [...... read more ]
