BINCO Malawi

steep slopes, elusive birds and dense forests

Project description

November 2020 - Mount mulanje forest reserve

Hidden in the dense afromontane forests on the slopes of Mount Mulanje, breeds a pair of the elusive endangered Spotted ground thrush (Geokichla guttata subsp. belcheri). How many birds are left in Malawi? What threats does the population face? Which conservation actions are urgently needed? We completed a rapid biodiversity survey to answer those questions.
