RESEARCH PROJECTS
The Society always encourages and supports all kinds of cooperative research works for birds. Members have actively participated in international and domestic bird researche focusing on breeding biology, ecology, and conservation of birds. Many members of the Society work at the National University of Mongolia as a professor, lecturer, and under, postgraduate students. These organizations cooperate on educating, training and conducting bird studies for the new generation of Mongolian ornithologists.
The following International research projects and field works were conducted by members of the society in Mongolia with foreign research institutes, organizations and ornithologists for the last few years.
