Cabinet amends wildlife hunting quotas for 2015

In the weekly meeting of the Cabinet held on Monday changes were made to the wildlife hunting quotas for 2015, established under Government Resolution No 377, issued on December 1, 2014.
The amended resolution allows 350 taimens for catch and release, 150 Mongolian antelopes and 300 birds for hunting, and 100 saker falcons for live export.
The export of saker falcons for profit was banned for a five-year term in compliance with Governmental Resolution No.15 issued in 2013. However, 40 birds were exported last year for cultural purposes.
Mongolia and the United Arab Emirates established a five-year memorandum of understanding on the conservation of carnivorous birds in 2011. Within the frames of the memorandum 20 soums of Tov, Khentii and Sukhbaatar aimags launched projects on improving the natural egg-laying conditions for saker falcons. accordingly, a total of 5,250 artificial nests received 200 mating pairs and became homes for 600 chicks in 2011; home to 380 pairs and 1,298 chicks in 2012; and over 500 pairs and 2,000 chicks in 2013. Considering these figures, the cabinet decided that the export of 100 saker falcons will not harm the species’ population, reported the Press and Public Relations Department of the Government.
