September IBA team meeting As members of the Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas IBA team are scattered around South Africa, the annual team meeting is a great platform for getting to know each other better and exchanging and discussing ideas.
Team members made presentations on the status of their projects and as a group they talked about various challenges they face and workshopped potential solutions.
The team is striving to work more effectively across programmes and with conservation NGOs, including in our new partnership with Conservation Outcomes. Its successes since the last meeting were also celebrated: Featured photos will be selected on quality, showing unique bird behaviour or the rarity of the bird.
If you are not on Instagram or find it easier, you may also submit your photo via e-mail to instagram birdlife. Red-knobbed Coot with chicks.
We look forward to your contributions! We are again partnering with the mobile app BirdLasser and will be able to show the progress of teams live on an interactive map that can be viewed by participants and supporters at any time during the day.
A dedicated Facebook events page has been created on which participants will be able to post and interact before, during and after the event.

The club organises day excursions, multi-day trips, talks and lectures, film screenings, volunteer and research opportunities, citizen science involvement and other events such as the ever-popular pub quiz.
It has strong ties to the FitzPatrick Institute of African Ornithology, considered to be one of the finest institutions of its ilk in the world.
The pull of being outside and looking for birds was much stronger than my inclination to delve into statistics!
I began to wonder who might be up for a jaunt to Strandfontein … Jess, Billi, Dom? The list went cold. I knew there were other students out there who were keen birders, but there was no connection between us.
Then it struck me: If we could show that we were satisfying a need for at least 50 people on campus and were capable of organising successful events, they would accept us onto the official roster. I roped in a few birdy friends, who pulled in a couple more and, just like that, the UCT Birding Club was born.
Returning a few years later in a professional capacity was, therefore, a real privilege. I gave a talk about the plight of the African Penguin and what BirdLife South Africa is doing to prevent this iconic species from going extinct. The talk was followed by some lively discussions over popcorn and wine it is a university society after all about eating seafood sustainably, the exciting prospect of a new penguin colony at De Hoop the club had visited the reserve during the year and the general poor status of seabirds worldwide.
Voting for the new committee followed and I was delighted that my good friend Jessleena Suri, the last remaining member of the founding committee, was re-elected as chairperson. It was very heartening to see that the club has grown in scope and enthusiasm. It even offers merchandise such as bumper stickers, is taking longer trips to places like Agulhas National Park, the Garden Route and Tankwa Karoo, and is keeping a steady membership, which is difficult in a university environment where people come and go.
As far as I can tell from Internet searches and asking around the Youth Africa Birding YAB community, the club is currently the only university-based birding club in Africa — quite a feather in its cap!
The successes of YAB and the UCT Birding Club show that birding is not a hobby exclusively for older people as is so often perceived; young people also enjoy the marvels of the avian world.
As more and more of the global population becomes disconnected from nature, fostering appreciation for the natural environment is crucial for the sake of conservation going forward.
