Crane census results are summed up in the Amur River basin
Despite the fact that cranes are one of the rarest bird species, a systematic survey of their numbers, distribution areas, and the number of breeding pairs has not been conducted for a very long time, which makes it difficult to understand the factors affecting the number of birds and take measures to protect them.
Crane census in Amurskaya province was carried out by the efforts of NGO AmurSEU, the Directorate of Protected Areas, the Khingansky Nature Reserve and the public organization “Khingan Keepers”.
During a survey on the territory of Evreiskaya province, 103 individuals of 3 crane species were recorded: 41 white-naped cranes, 25 hooded cranes, 25 red-crowned cranes.
In Zabaikalsky province, the staff of Daursky and Sokhondinsky nature reserves have been conducting crane survey for the second year already.
