Posted on 20 January 2022

Mongol Daguur wetlands are the small sized lakes in Daurian Steppe and wetlands along Ulz River, its surrounding areas in territories of Dashbalbar, Chuluunkhoroot, and Gurvanzagal soums of Dornod province located in the north-eastern of Mongolia.
Mongol Daguur wetlands are specific with the vast steppe and wetland valleys of tectonic and volcanic origins supporting numerous rivers and lakes. The wetlands and their immediate vicinities are rich in endemic flora species and provide important nesting, breeding, distribution and stopover sites to the globally and regionally threatened bird species (according to the IUCN Red List criteria) on their seasonal migration. Amongst them, there are six species of crane occuring and stoping over at the wetlands during their migration and breeding seasons.
