Enjoy them with respect
Great Bustards are very cautious birds and may flee from long distances. Please, avoid disturbing them especially at their lek sites, breeding or wintering places. Observe them from a long distance. In each country there are visitor facilities which make their observation easier, but reduces the risk of disturbance. To find out the location of these facilities, check out the websites of our partners.
If you leave in a Great Bustard area
Your observations can provide a valuable help for the conservation of Great Bustard. The Online Database on this website was designed to make it easier to share your observations with the national organisations responsible for the conservation of Great Bustard in your country.
Finding Great Bustard nests before the agriculture works start and safeguarding the nests saved requires a lot of time. Our partner organisations can always use help of volunteers and spending some time in close proximity of Great Bustards is an unforgetable experience. Check out the possibilities at our Partners' websites.
Protection of this majestic bird is an expensive venture. It requires specially trained personnel and equipment. Therefore, our Partners always need financial assistance.
