Abstract: BIRP is a joint project of BirdLife South Africa (BLSA), and the Animal Demography Unit (ADU), based at the University of Cape Town (UCT). The basic purpose of BIRP is to compile a comprehensive catalogue of the species of birds which occur and breed in South Africa?s many protected areas. A database of this kind will help to identify the species which are as yet not adequately protected and will also provide the managers of protected areas with information useful in setting management policies.
