Edition of the Atlas of wintering Waterbirds of Libya: 2005-2010
As part of the implementation of the “Action Plan for the Conservation of Bird Species listed in Annex II to the SPA/BD Protocol” and in order to fill many gaps in the knowledge concerning coastal and pelagic birds in the Mediterranean, RAC/SPA has, for several years, supported the organisation of winter waterbirds census in Libya in close collaboration with the Environment General Authority (EGA). Many other national and international organisations have participated in this activity.
This field work has allowed the gathering of valuable data that has formed the basis for developing the “Atlas of wintering Waterbirds of Libya”.
RAC/SPA have had the pleasure of contributing to the setting up of a team of national and international ornithologists, who have shown great enthusiasm and passion in working together in Libya.
This book is the first of its kind for North Africa.
BirdLife in the Netherlands writes about it (translated from Dutch):
