II International Scientific and Practical Conference
Eagles of Palearctic: Study and Conservation
7-10 September 2018
All Eurasian species of eagles are more or less rare, so saving them requires the combined efforts of countries where the birds breed, migrate and winter. Planning protective actions requires studying the status of the bird populations, as well as negative factors affecting them. The aim of the Conference is to discuss the current situation, negative factors and methods of study and protection of eagles, as well as to propose a strategy of protecting the most endangered of them.
This Conference was first held in Russia in 2013 (Elabuga, Republic of Tatarstan, Russia), when Steppe Eagle experts from around the world gathered to discuss that raptor’s plight and the event resulted in IUCN’s listing of the Steppe Eagle as “Endangered” in the IUCN Red Book and the development of a Russian national conservation strategy.
The focus of the 2018 Conference will be discussion of a Global Action Plan for protecting Imperial Eagle: One day of the Сonference will be dedicated to the 8th International Workshop on the Conservation of the Imperial Eagle. Imperial Eagle experts have gathered in Central Europe seven times since 1990, in order to discuss the latest research, develop conservation strategies, and generate reports and studies. For the first time such a meeting will be held in Russia – in the place of the highest density of nesting Imperial Eagles in the World.
Species of the Conference: Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos), Imperial Eagle (A. heliaca), Steppe Eagle (A. nipalensis), Tawny Eagle (A. rapax), Bonelli’s Eagle (A. fasciata), Greater and Lesser Spotted Eagles (A. clanga, A. pomarina), Booted Eagle (Hieraaetus pennatus), Mountain Hawk-Eagle (Nisaetus nipalensis), White-Tailed Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla), Steller’s Sea-Eagle (H. pelagicus), Pallas’s Fish-Eagle (H. leucoryphus), Short-toed Eagle (Circaetus gallicus), Osprey (Pandion haliaetus).
The Key topics of the Conference:
The conference will consist of several plenary sessions with presentations on key aspects of the study and conservation of eagles in Eurasia, a poster session, workshops on current issues in the conservation of species. At the end of the conference a resolution will be adopted and recommendations for further programs for the study and conservation of eagles and their populations will be developed.
During the conference, there will be a side-trip to Altai’s Kan river basin (Ust’-Kan region), known to contain the world’s highest density of raptor nesting sites. All 5 Siberian eagle species are active in the area in September, and participants will share expertise on eagle identification and identifying nesting sites. Also, after the Conference, participants will be offered guided tours of Altai’s interesting from the ornithological point of view areas – Katun (rafting), Teletskoye Lake in the Altai State Nature Reserve and Sailyugemsky National Park and its surroundings.
