Guidelines for preparation of state action plan for Bustards’ recovery programme

The objectives of the species recovery action plan are: To augment the populations of Great Indian Bustard, Lesser Florican and Bengal Florican to a minimum viable population in order to remove the three species from the list of Critically Endangered Species; To improve the habitat range of the Great Indian Bustard, Lesser Florican and Bengal Florican, especially the breeding sites and nesting sites of these species; and To facilitate a participatory approach to conservation of Great Indian Bustard, Lesser Florican and Bengal Florican. The Chief Wildlife Warden may forward the State Action Plan based on these guidelines to this Ministry for appraisal, and providing assistance for implementation at the earliest. The State Action Plan may envisage action for 5-10 years and shall also clearly indicate the year-wise activities to be undertaken so as to review the progress annually.
