Ranthambore National Park and Tiger Reserve


IBA Justification

The site was identified as important in 2004 because it was regularly supporting significant populations of the species listed below, meeting ('triggering') IBA criteria.

Populations meeting IBA criteria ('trigger species'):
Species Current IUCN Red List Category Season Year(s) Population estimate at site IBA criteria met
Sarus Crane Grus antigone VU resident 2004 present A1
Lesser Adjutant Leptoptilos javanicus NT resident 2004 present A1
White-rumped Vulture Gyps bengalensis CR non-breeding 2004 present A1
Indian Vulture Gyps indicus CR non-breeding 2004 present A1
Eastern Imperial Eagle Aquila heliaca VU winter 2004 present A1
White-browed Bushchat Saxicola macrorhynchus VU resident 2004 present A1, A3

The current IUCN Red List category may differ from that which was valid at the time of IBA criteria assessment (2004).

Pressure (threats to the trigger species and/or their habitats)
Threat level 1 Threat level 2 Timing Scope Severity Result
Agricultural expansion and intensification livestock farming and ranching (includes forest grazing) - small-holder grazing, ranching or farming happening now small area/few individuals (<10%) moderate to rapid deterioration low
Biological resource use hunting & collecting terrestrial animals - intentional use (species being assessed is the target) happening now small area/few individuals (<10%) slow but significant deterioration low
Biological resource use logging & wood harvesting - unintentional effects: subsistence/small scale happening now some of area/population (10-49%) slow but significant deterioration medium
Human intrusions and disturbance recreational activities happening now some of area/population (10-49%) slow but significant deterioration medium
Residential and commercial development housing and urban areas happening now small area/few individuals (<10%) moderate to rapid deterioration low
