First ever project to restore the the Altai population of the Saker falcon (Falco cherrug) in Russia.
The project was supported by the Altai-Sayan Programme of WWF Russia and the World Around You Foundation of the Siberian Health Corporation.
For the first time in Russia, the experts of the Russian Raptor Research and Conservation Network (RRRCN) have used a unique methodology.
In 2017 ten chicks born in captivity were placed in the nests of wild birds in Altay-Sayan Ecoregion, the most important Saker falcon habitat in Russia. The pairs of wild falcons fed them like their own and taught them to prey and live in the wild.
Thanks to GPS tracker the ornithologists still follow the route of one of the birds. The project of restoring the Saker falcon population in the Altai region will be continued. Помочь природе | https://wwf.ru/help/
