The Legendary Team SABAP2012 reaches 25% coverage
Team SABAP2 is going where no team of atlasers has ever been before. We are creating the movie of bird distributions, and we reached a milestone worth celebrating today. SABAP2012 has passed the 25% level of coverage. Why is SABAP2012 important? Distributions of every component of biodiversity are on the move. Mammals, plants, butterflies, reptiles, birds, ... Changes in bird distributions are taking place continuously. SABAP2 offers a unique opportunity to monitor these changes for birds more intensively than can be done for any other taxon. All this contributes towards making SABAP2 the most important conservation monitoring project in the region.
From the start of SABAP2, it took 24 months to reach 25% coverage; now we have achieved this in a shade over nine months.
Maybe we could try to target one-third coverage, 33.3%, for SABAP2012. This would need a big push over the next three months, and especially in the December half of the summer holidays.
If you need helping in finding pentads which have not yet been atlased in 2012, then there is a set of instructions in this news item. Wherever you are, there are pentads unvisited in 2012 near you.
Great work, Team SABAP2, you are a legend.
