Great Indian Bustard chick hatches from birds reared in captivity (

The number of Great Indian Bustards has declined to less than 150 in the wild, with close to 90 of them found in just two protected areas.

A chick of a Great Indian Bustard reared in captivity was for the first time hatched on Saturday in Jaisalmer’s breeding centre, which aims to release the critically endangered birds in the wild to stem their declining population. “This shows that our effort to save the Great Indian Bustards is moving in the right direction,” said a scientist at the Wildlife Institute of India who has been working on the iconic bids for several years.

Hope this is a start to save these magnificent birds
