YEREVAN, Armenia – As the American University of Armenia (AUA)’s Acopian Center for the Environment (AUA ACE) continues its engagement in the conservation of Armenia’s white stork population, the project has sparked the interest of CivilNet.

The most recent activity on storks is collaboration between AUA ACE, the Max Plank Institute of Ornithology in Germany, and residents of the Ararat Plain. The team is currently conducting a migration study, tracking migration patterns of a group of white storks using data from GPS devices placed on storks. For the CivilNet coverage, please click here.
