Wildlife Expeditions in the Caucasus
After the successful expeditions of last year, SABUKO (Society for Nature Conservation), known from conservation projects such as the Batumi Raptor Count, offers a unique opportunity to explore the wildest corners of Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan.
The aim of the expeditions is to locate nests and breeding pairs of Imperial Eagle and Egyptian Vulture to gain better insight in the population size in the Southern Caucasus. The Imperial Eagle is evaluated as Vulnerable and the Egyptian vulture as Endangered, according to IUCN, so the data collected will be very valuable for supporting the incoming Flyway Action Plan for the Conservation of Balkan and Central Asian Populations of the Egyptian Vulture. Expeditions might also gather interesting information about other species such as new wintering and breeding grounds and new records of scarce species, as the surveys will take place in remote and rarely visited areas. For a small fee we invite you to be part of a skilled team which will explore the most remote corners of the Southern Caucasus.
