About this book

Language: English

This booklet reports on the author's investigation on the migration of Eurasian cranes in the north of Myanmar, which come in across the Himalayas to overwinter here. It also considers rumours about the presence of other crane species in Myanmar, concluding that only Sarus and Eurasian cranes are regular guests in this country, whereas black-necked and demoiselle cranes are not.

Biography

Joost van der Ven was Nature Conservation Inspector with Staatsbosbeheer (the Dutch Forestry Management agency) and narrowly survived the conflict between LNV and CRM, the two ministries involved. He opted wisely for a temporary ‘flight’ to England, where for several years he was deputy Director of the International Waterfowl Research Bureau. Both reorganisations within the bureau itself and projects in Asia demanded all his attention. The waterfowl counts in the winter in Asia were organised with great success, and more and more countries wanted to participate in them. The coordinated counts afforded insight into the size of the populations of many waterfowl species. A variety of publications, including by other authors, were the result. Following his return to the Netherlands he stayed with the Ministry of Agriculture and joined the foreign service of the ministry, with appointments in Paris, Abidjan and Moscow. In Moscow the post became interesting after the collapse of the Soviet Union, offering the possibility of visiting areas in Asia which were previously barely accessible. Following this, he chose to stay in Asia and to work on projects for the EU in Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. Apart from this, he also worked on about ten projects for Wetlands International in South-East Asia and the Pacific.
