Birds endemic to a region are birds found in that region and nowhere else. This means that should birds endemic to a region disappear completely from that region, by definition that bird species will have become extinct. The Southern African region is generally accepted as being that part of Africa lying south of the Zambezi-Okavango- Kunene Rivers (approximately 17ºS). Southern Africa, with its rich variety of birdlife, is home to 103 endemic bird species (all but one are illustrated here). Also illustrated are 18 of the 72 near endemic species (whose distribution extends just beyond Southern Africa). Some of these are shown and identified on this poster. Because these birds occur only in our region we bear the sole responsibility for ensuring their continued survival.
Whether you are a serious bird watcher or not, one thing is guaranteed … you will love this poster.
This poster will adorn any wall at home, in the waiting room, at the office or in school or university. It will make a perfect gift not just for bird enthusiasts but for nature lovers in general.
We find that many people buy our posters for their children’s bedrooms to encourage them to have a lifelong interest in nature and its wonderful creatures.
The wall poster measures 900 mm x 594 mm (35.4” x 23.4”). The poster is double laminated (ie laminated both sides) for ultimate protection, and will be shipped to you in a sturdy postal tube.
