In Search of the Great Indian Bustard

Asad Rahmani, Director of the Bombay Natural History Society, who has been studying the Great Indian Bustard for 25 years, in an interview about the importance of saving the bustard which is on the verge of extinction:
There are 22 species of bustards in the world, 16 of which are found in Africa. The Indian subcontinent had six species: GIB, Houbara or Macqueen's bustard, Lesser Florican and Bengal Florican, but in the last 80 years, there has been no record of the existence of the Great and Little bustards. Houbara bustard is purely migratory and seen in arid parts of Rajasthan and Gujarat during winter.
