THE INLAND WATERBIRDS OF SOUTHERN AFRICA
The Korck Publishing  Wall Poster “Newman’s Inland Waterbirds of Southern Africa – (Classic Edition)” 

  • Represented on this poster are 99 species of inland waterbirds illustrated by Kenneth Newman. Among the bird families shown are: bittern, cormorant, crake, duck, egret, flamingo, flufftail, gallinule, goose, grebe, heron, ibis, jacana, kingfisher, moorhen, pelican, plover, sandpiper, snipe, stork, teal and tern.

  • For years Man has been ‘reclaiming’ marshlands by draining them, and ‘controlling’inland waterways through canalisation and damming.  The effect is always to largely destroy such areas as habitats for the abundant and infinitely varied plant and natural life forms which originally inhabited them. More recently, unfortunate farming practices and increasing industrialisation have lead to chemical and toxic effluent pollution of many of our rivers and streams and the areas into which they flow, with equally disastrous effects upon the delicately balanced eco-systems of these areas

  • There are clear signs now through southern Africa that the destruction of inland wetland areas is placing those that remain under intense and unsupportable pressure.  The message is clear. We must do all in our power to preserve our remaining natural wetland areas. Otherwise (as just one negative consequence of failure to do so) a wonderfully interesting sector of our birdlife could leave us for more  hospitable breeding areas. We will be the poorer.

  • On the positive side, much effort is currently being directed to the preservation – and restoration – of many of our existing wetland areas.
