  18. 18. What’s the value? • Contributions were made to eight of the sections of the Animal Demography Unit’s Virtual Museum at http://vmus.adu.org.za • The crucial first step in setting priorities for biodiversity conservation is a knowledge of the distributions of each species and how they are changing • We need 1000s of Virtual Museum records – photo-place-date – to build these distribution maps
  19. 19. What can you do to help? Snap it and MAP it
  20. 20. The need for baselines • We are building the baseline against which to measure how development and climate change are impacting Africa’s biodiversity • Our ability to effectively manage and conserve the incredible abundance and diversity of life in Africa is compromised by our limited knowledge of up-to-date distribution patterns
