Threats to the Great Indian Bustard and Conservation Efforts

The Great Indian Bustard (GIB), a critically endangered species, faces imminent extinction due to habitat loss, collisions with power lines, and poaching. With an estimated population of fewer than 200 individuals, efforts to save the GIB involve habitat improvement, conservation breeding, and the implementation of Project Great Indian Bustard, which aims to recover its population. Challenges include the bird’s shy nature, making artificial breeding difficult, and high infant mortality rates. Conservation efforts emphasize the need for swift, decisive actions and the involvement of government, scientific communities, and local communities to ensure the survival of this iconic species of India’s grasslands​.
