All Eurasian species of eagles are more or less rare, so saving them requires the combined efforts of countries where the birds breed, migrate and winter. Planning protective actions requires studying the status of the bird populations, as well as negative factors affecting them. The aim of the Conference is to discuss the current situation, negative factors, and methods of study and protection of eagles, as well as to propose a strategy of protecting the most endangered of them.

This Conference was first held in Russia in 2013 (Elabuga, Republic of Tatarstan, Russia), when Steppe Eagle experts from around the world gathered to discuss that raptor’s plight and the event resulted in IUCN’s listing of the Steppe Eagle as “Endangered” in the IUCN Red Book and the development of a Russian national conservation strategy.

The focus of the 2018 Conference will be a discussion of a Global Action Plan for protecting Imperial Eagle: one day of the conference will be dedicated to the 8th International Workshop on the Conservation of the Imperial Eagle. Imperial Eagle experts have gathered in Central Europe seven times since 1990, in order to discuss the latest research, develop conservation strategies, and generate reports and studies. For the first time, such a meeting will be held in Russia – in the place of the highest density of nesting Imperial Eagles in the World.

Species of the Сonference: Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos), Imperial Eagle (A. heliaca), Steppe Eagle (A. nipalensis), Tawny Eagle (A. rapax), Greater and Lesser Spotted Eagles (A. clanga, A. pomarina), Mountain Hawk-Eagle (Nisaetus nipalensis), White-Tailed Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla), Steller’s Sea-Eagle (H. pelagicus), Pallas’s Fish-Eagle (H. leucoryphus), Bonelli’s Eagle (Hieraaetus fasciatus), Booted Eagle (H. pennatus), Short-toed Eagle (Circaetus gallicus), Osprey (Pandion haliaetus).

The Key topics of the Conference:
- populations of eagles – current status and trends,
- threats – human persecution, poisoning, electrocution, and collisions,
- conservation – approaches and techniques, international collaboration and cooperation,
- methods and techniques for studying eagles,
- breeding biology, ecology,
- movements – dispersal, habitat use and migration studies, including by means of ringing and transmitters,
- genetics, evolution, phylogeny, and phylogeography of eagles, taxonomy,
- climate change – potential influences and impacts,
- breeding in captivity and sustainable use,
- eagles as ecological indicators.
