Yemen / Saudi Arabia Red Sea coast (winter breeding - January)
Since the end of 2002, a joint survey is regularly carried out along the border of Yemen and Saudi Arabia in the winter breeding areas on the Red Sea coastal plains. A single team composed of two locust officers from each country undertakes the 3-5 day survey. The survey strengthens collaboration between the two countries and the results are used for planning winter campaigns.
