  • BIRDLIFE ZIMBABWE – Dr Doug Harbottle, SABAP2 co-ordinator in ZimbabweBirdLife Zimbabwe has invited Dr Doug Harebottle, of the Animal Deography Unit (ADU), University of Cape Town, RSA and co-ordinator of SABAP2 to Zimbabwe this year.

SABAP2 is the most far reaching bird conservation research project in southern africa. If you don`t know the distribution of birds and how they are changing, you cannot do conservation intelligently and

effectively.  As a citizen scientist, you can contribute too!  Participation in this programme means that you too can make a valuable contribution to our knowledge of birds and to bird conservation. The data are used

for our Important Bird Areas Programme, for Environmental Impact Assessments and for ornithological research projects. But submitting data for this project is also fun. You will learn about birds, their behaviour

and distribution. You will also become part of a larger atlassing community – a community committed to bird monitoring and to bird conservation

Did you contribute to the Bird Atlas (SABAP) 1987-1992?  We are inviting the whole birding community in Zimbabwe to come and meet Dr Harebottle and find out more about SABAP2.  This project has

been running in South Africa and other countries are now coming on board.  The methods are different and pentads are used instead of the QDS (quarter degree square); this new atlas should show abundance of

species on a much finer scale. For more details see http://sabap2.adu.org.za

Dr Harebottle will be doing presentations to explain SABAP2 and workshops and meetings with him are being organized and you are all invited to attend – (free of charge)
