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. This slideshow demonstrates how the citizen scientists who contribute their observations to SABAP2 have made the most amazing progress since the project started in July 2007. The slideshow shows year by year progress since July 2007 to July 2012, and then shows progress in the five months to 22 December 2012
