Mongolia to export eagle feathers

By M.ZOLJARGAL

Tsarmyn Burged (Eagle of Tsaram) NGO in Bayan-Ulgii Province will now be buying shed Mongolian eagle feathers from eagle hunters and exporting them to the Arrow and Bow Society of Japan. The agreement is an effort to raise funds for efforts to species preservation.

The Society uses shed feathers for producing arrows and bows. Negotiations were held with hunters on the price of feathers and the Arrow and Bow Society and Tsarmyn Burged offered to provide financial assistance for feeding the eagles throughout the year.

Mongolia is home to many endangered and birds of prey and scavenger species, such as the Western Marsh Harrier, Steppe Eagle, Tsarmyn Eagle, Saker Falcon, vulture and bearded vulture. Birds of prey play a vital role in the biodiversity of an ecosystem. Scientists warn that if a single species of predator bird becomes extinct, an ecosystem could lose its balance.
