The Greater Adjutant Leptoptilos dubius is one of the rarest storks on the Indian subcontinent. In Nepal and Bangladesh it has become extremely rare while in India it is still found in moderate numbers in the north-eastern state of Assam: 115 individuals were seen there during a survey in 1989. Only one breeding spot with 5-6 nests is presently known.
