Pakistan Army & Houbara Foundation International Pakistan carried out 24th annual aerial seed broadcast in Cholistan desert with Pakistan Army Mushshak aircraft from Sheikh Zayed International Air Port (SZIAP) - Rahim Yar Khan.

Pakistan Army Mushshak aircraft are used for aerial seeding of Dharman, Karir, Lathia, Phel, Khavi, Mallah Berry and Sarson plants. Houbara bustard feeds on these plants and their seeds.

In 1998, the Houbara Foundation International Pakistan undertook to reinforce the diminishing vegetation through aerial broadcast of seeds of the desert plants in Cholistan, the prime wintering habitat of the houbara bustard. This year, 177 kg seeds of houbara’s favorite food plants have been broadcast, bringing the total seed broadcast in the last 23 years to over 2,789 kg. Regular monitoring of the habitat shows encouraging results and higher yields of germination are expected as the work goes on.

Restoration of complete habitat is a long and laborious task but with dedicated support of the Pakistan Army, Houbara Foundation aims at continuing to work on the project and restore the ecological balance by reinforcing the desert vegetation and building up populations of houbara and other wildlife species.
