Bird Ringing Demonstration at Farmoor Res Oxon, 25th February 2012
Three recent grants to Prof. Andy Gosler and his group based in Zoology and Anthropology have supported development of The Ethno-ornithology World Atlas (EWA), enhancing its usability. The EWA map (https://EWAtlas.net) shows the group’s ongoing work with local communities in S. America and India, the fruits of a new collaboration with the Living Tongues Institute for Endangered Languages (https://livingtongues.org/) , and ongoing collaboration with BirdLife International. A recent article by Jim Robbins published by the BBC gives more background: https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20210714-why-local-legends-about-birds-matter.
