Bird research in South African Game Reserves, including Kariega
The Kariega Conservation Volunteers assist the wildlife management team on the reserve with numerous conservation and research projects. We are sharing the "Birds in Reserves" project booklet to further assist the volunteers (and all readers) to gain insights into the many indigenous species of birds. Please contact our Conservation Volunteer Co-ordinator, Helena Warren via email email@example.com for further information on the volunteer programme.
Birds in Reserves Project Instructions Guide
The Birds in Reserves Project (BIRP) is a joint collaborative project of the Avian Demography Unit (ADU) and BirdLife South Africa. The ADU is a research unit of the Department of Statistical Sciences, UCT, and enjoys the partnership of BirdLife South Africa. The mission of the Avian Demography Unit is to contribute to the improved understanding of bird populations, especially bird population dynamics, and thus make a contribution to their conservation. We achieve this through mass participation projects, long-term monitoring, innovative statistical modelling and population-level interpretation of results. The emphasis is on the curation, analysis, publication and dissemination of data.
