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 in both space and time. This is achieved by getting as much of the area as possible covered each year. This slideshow demonstrates what the citizen scientists who contribute their observations to SABAP2 achieved through SABAP2012, and sets the scene for SABAP2013.
