Kori_Bustard

#

Kori Bustard (Ardeotis kori); this species is the flagship of Zambia’s southernmost grassland IBAs such as Simungoma which is about 10km from the Zambia-Namibia border. This bird is iconic as the heaviest flying bird in the world. Habitat destruction and alteration is the major threat affecting this species as grasslands are being burnt out, converted into farmland or over harvested for thatching and other domestic uses.
