Kazakhstan Joins Forces to Protect Golden Eagle Population

The Kazakh Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources and Efes Kazakhstan signed a memorandum of intent on June 19 to implement the social project Save the Berkuts. The project aims to preserve and restore the golden eagle population in Kazakhstan.

The golden eagle, renowned among the hawk family as the largest eagle, holds a prestigious status as one of Kazakhstan’s "zhety kazyna" (seven treasures). It is listed as a rare and endangered species in Kazakhstan’s Red Book and is safeguarded by national legislation, international agreements, and the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

According to the ministry’s press service, the Save the Berkuts project, part of the Save Nature initiative, originally spearheaded by Efes Kazakhstan from 2012 to 2019, continues to make significant contributions. During this period, 25 golden eagles were successfully raised and reintroduced into the wild in the Almaty Region, contributing to their population growth.

The current phase of the project emphasizes comprehensive research and data collection on the golden eagle's population and habitat in Kazakhstan, followed by strategic reintroductions into their natural environment.

In a collaborative effort, the ministry will support this research and subsequent eagle releases, advocating for the recognition of their findings. Efes Kazakhstan will execute the project according to its roadmap, securing funding from 2024 to 2034 for expeditions, eagle breeding, maintenance, and comprehensive progress reporting.

The signing of the memorandum underscores the joint commitment of governmental and private entities to preserve Kazakhstan’s natural heritage.(Source:astanatimes)
