Great Bustard Back!

““In 2003 a delegation from the UK visited us. They had read our work on the great bustard population and decided to look us up. They offered their cooperation, and the programme is now in its fifth year,” explained Anatoly Khrustov, the Saratov Head of the Severtsov Institute of Ecology and Evolution.”

The Great Bustard is the world’s heaviest flying bird and around 7,000 live in the wild in Russia, but in the United Kingdom they were hunted till gone around a couple of centuries ago.
