Position title – Education component manager For Imperial Eagle Conservation in Georgia
The Eastern Imperial Eagle (Aquila heliaca) is classified as globally vulnerable and decreasing by IUCN. The steppe zone of East Georgia and West Azerbaijan forms an important breeding and wintering site holding an estimated 45-60 breeding pairs (Demerdzhiev et al. 2011). Strong evidence indicates that the population’s growth has been halted by the depletion of suitable nest sites, and its recovery is still constrained by this factor. Despite a good reproductive success, the lack of nest sites prevents the recovery of the eagle population.
The aim of the project is to address these constraints, and bring about a population increase in this threatened species. Towards this aim, we will employ direct conservation measures, supplemented by awareness-raising and involvement of the local communities.
