Pakistan’s houbara bird facing extintion
The indiscriminate hunting of endangered houbara bustard birds in Pakistan by rich hunting parties form the Gulf nations have puhes the species toward extintion. The hunting was initially banned by the Pakistani courts, but under continuous pressure from the provinvial goverments of Sind, Baluchistan, and Punjab, as the federal government, recently the court lifted the ban on the hunting of this vulnerable speCIES.
Some people in Pakistan have been advocating for sustainable hunting of the species instead of a complete ban, but this is highly debatable. Reckless hunting for decades has pushed this beautiful species toward extintion and it is now critically endangered in Pakistan.
No realiable or credible statistic on the population dynamics of the species runs the risk of becoming extinct in the wild in the next few decades.
Under tese circumstances, the only logical approach to save the species from extinxtion in the not-so-distant future is to immediately start comprehensive captive breending program for the species acros the nation.
If the captive breeding program runs uccessfully and produces an appreciable number of chicks, then reintroduction programs could some restricted hunting be planned.
Only after rebuilding the population for some time in the wild and allowing them to breed naturally to reach a sustainable population could some restricted hunting be planned.
Currently, the low numbers have made this species vulnerable and with zero or poor monitoring, sustainable hunting practices in Pakistan for this dwindling species will not work.
Game hunting works only when a stable population is achives with strict monitoring on the ratio of males to female hunted per season. If the femals (no true statistics available) are being taken out of the population through random hunting, the population is sure to pas through a bottleneck in the wild habitat, with high vulnerability to eventual extinction.
The people of Pakistan ned to decide what is more important-a few petrodollars or protecting trhe biodiverity of the nation.
