Relict Gull Larus relictus

This species is listed as Vulnerable because it is suspected that it will undergo rapid population declines in the next three generations.

A large number of breeding population is recorded in Western Mongolia.

Hodgson's Bushchat Saxicola insignis

The bushchat breeds in the alpine or sub-alpine meadows and scrub in the mountains of Mongolia and adjacent parts of Russia. It winters in the Terai of Nepal and northern India in wet and dry grasslands, reeds and tamarisks along riverbeds, and also in sugarcane fields. This species has been classified as Vulnerable by BirdLife International. The major threat appears to be the rapid loss of grasslands in its wintering area.

Great Bustard Otis tarda

The Great Bustard is one of the heaviest species capable of flight. This species is considered globally Vulnerable by IUCN due to past population declines and projected declines of 30% over the next ten years. There is particular concern about Central Asian populations of Great Bustards, which have experienced sharp declines in recent times. Mongolia plays a key role in the conservation of the Asian subspecies of Great Bustard, Otis tarda dybowskii. Only 1000 individuals of this subspecies are estimated to remain.
