The South African Bird Ringing Unit

Ringing birds around Africa!


A Short History of SAFRING - Part 9

Dieter Oschadleus(2018-09-11)

Bird ringing (or bird banding) in South Africa began in August 1948, exactly 70 years ago. In a series of short articles Dane Paijmans and I have presented an overview of ringing in southern Africa, largely by looking at the successive ringing organisers and what they achieved. This set of news items can be read on the SAFRING web site, or a slightly updated version may be read on the Biodiversity and Development Instituteweb site. In 2018 SAFRING moved back to the FitzPatrick Institute of African Ornithology, where it had been prior to being part of the Animal Demography Unit.
