Author(s): Adesh Kumar and Amita Kanaujia
Abstract: Community-based conservation (CBC) encompasses several core principles, including: involving communities in decision-making; devolving control over resource management; developing community institutions for management; incorporating traditional or local knowledge; legitimizing community property rights; linking environment and development objectives; and providing incentives for conservation. In 2013- 2014, the study was done to assess how perceptions of the egg and nest destruction of Sarus crane might have changed over time. There were sustained high levels of support for conservation and positive perceptions of conservational activities on community. The Indian Sarus Crane (Grus antigone antigone), the world's tallest flying bird and a globally 'Vulnerable' species as per IUCN Red List of Threatened Species is the only resident breeding crane in India. The breeding biology of Sarus Crane was studied for two breeding (2013-2014) season in Lucknow District, Uttar Pradesh. Seven pairs were studied during study period at three sites. During the study nesting success in PGI and Mahona was 100% each and in Nagar Chaungwa was 50%. Continuous monitoring of study sites improved the nesting and breeding success of Sarus crane in the study sites.
