SABAP2 (http://sabap2.adu.org.za) is the most important bird conservation research project in southern Africa. If you don't know the distributions of birds, and how they are changing, you cannot effectively do conservation intelligently. SABAP2 is monitoring the distributions of bird species across southern Africa. This slideshow demonstrates what the citizen scientists who contribute their observations to SABAP2 have achieved through the years since the project started in July 2007. It shows the coverage map each year in July, and the final slide shows the impressive additional coverage in the nine months since July 2012 to March 2013.
