Here's what some of our cause owners had to say about our partnerships.
As researchers we are often constrained by time and funding. BirdLasser is a vital conservation research tool that informs data-sets where field surveys would be otherwise unfeasible. Through Birdlasser, our project has gained critical insights into the distribution of threatened species, while at the same time saving time, money and resources for conservation research. Dr. Y.C Ehlers Smith, Post-doctoral Research Fellow, University of KwaZulu-Natal / DST-NRF Centre in Indigenous Knowledge Systems
One of the Cape Parrot Projects goals is to monitor the movement of Cape Parrots throughout their range. And with the help of sightings records submitted on the BirdLasser platform, we can cover a much wider area than what our small research team can ever do. Every additional sighting helps us understand the distribution and movement of the birds. Cassie Carstens, Cape Parrot Project
BirdLasser not only provides the most convenient and sophisticated method for atlassing in the field, but is also dedicated to conservation behind the scenes. Their commitment to helping find solutions to Southern Africa's conservation challenges through their "Causes" programme by providing robust data-sets for ecological research and management planning is exemplary. David Ehlers Smith, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, UKZN
Without the contribution of the BirdLasser data we would be unable to sufficiently monitor the national Southern Ground-Hornbill population. The monitoring is vital to find areas where conservation action is urgently required. For such a naturally low-density occurring species, every single sighting record is like gold.
