Govt to undertake census of Great Indian Bustard

The state government will soon undertake a census of the Great Indian Bustard, one of the most critically endangered flying bird species in the world, to ascertain its exact population. "The count of the Great Indian Bustard will be undertaken in January-February to know its population," Gujarat Principal Chief Wildlife Conservator of Forest C N Pandey said on Tuesday.

Pandey said that it is expected to give a realistic picture of the dwindling population of the species. The survey count will be undertaken by the state forest department, various scientific organisations, NGOs and nature clubs.
