ULAANBAATAR, MONGOLIA, MAY 27, 2017: 300 Saker falcons WERE electrocuted on powerlines covering only a small 55-kilometre study area. These falcons were collected in a study conducted over one year by Mongolia's Wildlife Science and Conservation Center. Batbayar Bold, one of their biologists, is seen laying out the falcons. There are over 4000 kilometers of powerlines in Mongolia, estimated to have killed over 5,000 Saker falcons over the last 5 years.
