Amur Falcons: One of the Most Successful Conservation Stories to Date
Satellite-tracked Amur Falcons return successfully to the Tamenglong district in Manipur, leading to further protection and conservation efforts for migratory birds and endangered species alike. Migration and Poaching With the beginning of winter Amur Falcons (Falco Amurensis) flock in large numbers across northeast India, which acts as a stop-over ground in the bird’s annual migration path.
Utilising Satellite Technology for Wildlife Conservation
High-resolution remote sensing images have provided conservationists and ecologists with the ability to accurately monitor illegal mining, to monitor wildlife populations, to rapidly detect deforestation activities and other alterations being made to the landscape. Earth imagery provided by satellites is collected frequently, globally, and at an increasingly higher quality.
