The Asian Great Bustard project http://www.asiangreatbustard.org/ has launched a fund-raising initiative (http://www.rockethub.com/projects/10600-mongolian-myth-bustards) to cover the costs of field research, the final year of tuition for our team's second master's student, G. Natsag and radio transmitter time for Great Bustards which already have transmitters.
They aim to raise $3,230 by the 17th of January next year.
The Asian Great Bustard project is run by Mimi Kessler, a friend of the Great Bustard Project.
Their fund-raising video is available to view below:
As part of the fund-raising initiative, the project is offering further incentives beyond for those benefactors who donate certain amounts, including printed photos and the adoption of a Great Bustard.
