on *Thursday, January 7, 2009.* Talk will start at 6:00pm

Abstracts are attached

Biobeers is held on the first Thursday of every month at Sweet Cafe
(located behind the Information and Technological National Park and
next to the Admon Printing Company, west of Internom Bookstore
Building). People are requested to arrive after 5:30pm, in time for the
talk to start at 6:00.

Biobeers is a monthly gathering of government and NGO staff,
biologists, researchers, and other professionals interested in
conservation. Each month, Biobeers sponsors a half-hour presentation
on a topic relevant to Mongolian conservation, followed by an informal
gathering to discuss activities and issues of interest. Biobeers is an
opportunity to find out what is happening in the field of conservation
in Mongolia, talk informally to other researchers and peers in your
field, and share information about issues critical to the environment
and people of Mongolia.

Biobeers is organised by the Zoological Society of London's Steppe
Forward Programme and sponsored by the Wildlife Conservation Society.
At Biobeers the beer is on us!

CONSERVATION OF THE SAKER FALCON THROUGH SUSTAINABLE USE

Andrew Dixon

International Wildlife Consultants, UK Ltd

Abstract
There is a demand for Saker Falcons for use in Arabic falconry. This demand is met by commercial trade, either through captive-breeding or by wild harvesting. The trade in wild-sourced Saker Falcons can be a legal, CITES regulated trade or it can be an unregulated, illegal trade. Mongolia is the only country that operates a significant legal, CITES regulated harvest (virtually all other international trade in wild Sakers is illegal). However, the Mongolian trade has been subject to a CITES Trade Review because the harvest is potentially detrimental to the Saker population in Mongolia. Conservation through sustainable use is enshrined within the Convention on Biological Diversity and has great potential in its application to Saker Falcon conservation in Mongolia, whilst the continued existence of a sustainable, CITES regulated wild harvest has potential conservation benefits for Sakers internationally. In this talk I will describe the potential for developing a conservation programme for the Saker based on a sustainable harvest in Mongolia and the problems that need to be overcome to implement this conservation strategy.

PRODUCTIVITY OF SAKER FALCON AT THE ARTIFICIAL NEST

AND NATURAL NEST SITES IN CENTRAL MONGOLIA

We have been studying breeding success of saker falcon at the artificial nest and natural nest sites in central Mongolia since 2007. In line with breeding density, the clutch size, brood size and fledging success of Saker Falcons was lowest at the natural nest grid compared with the artificial nest site. The number of pairs of saker falcons at the artificial nest site is increasing in each year.
