The breeder flock of the desert beauty – Houbara bustard - is captive bred and reared scientifically in this facility under expert supervision. The planned breeding resorts to techniques of artificial insemination and incubation of eggs. The resulting houbara chicks are reared carefully under special protocols of management. The EWBC aims at producing enough houbara chicks every year to responsibly restock the wild population by releasing them into their natural tracts. For this the chicks are reared in custom designed semi - intensive enclosures with minimal human contacts. The method prevents human imprinting on the chicks and makes them better prospects for release into the wild. The noble efforts towards the cause of saving this desert beauty from extinction has been rewarded by encouraging results so far.

Declining numbers due to hunting, poaching and habitat losses have led to the Houbara bustard being classified “Vulnerable” by the IUCN. This uniquely majestic desert beauty needed captive breeding and re-introduction programs to help sustain its numbers in the wild. The International Fund for Ecological Research (IFER) under the patronage of MME Qatar is committed to interventions in this regard. Houbara captive breeding program at Errachidia Wildlife Breeding Center (EWBC) Errachidia, under the auspices of IFER is one such generous effort towards this noble cause.
