Despite over a decade of conservation efforts the Sarus Crane population in Cambodia has not increased.

The proposed research project that forms the basis of Robert van Zalinge's PhD thesis examines whether breeding in the wet season or foraging in the Cambodian dry season are currently limiting population growth. The project will then allow adjustment of current conservation efforts to address population growth bottlenecks.

Robert van Zalinge has worked for seven years on bird conservation projects in Cambodia and the proposed study is an extension of that work.
