Atlassing Nigeria's BirdsA project that involves us all.
Map all of Nigeria’s bird species and describe their status through the help and valued input from Citizen Scientists – volunteer members of the public through the submission of their observations from their birding outings.
The project has come a long way since inception and spans the entire nation and comprises over 11,000 pentads measuring 5ʹ x 5ʹ of latitude and longitude i.e. c.9m x 9m respectively. Current survey coverage can be viewed via the project portal [http://nigeria.birdmap.africa/coverage/project/nigeria].
Through active bird clubs across the nation, we have been able to achieve great strides in atlasing Nigeria's birds while having fun and appreciating nature. Join a bird club around you today and contribute to the project while having fun as well.
