For the birding public NARREC has produced publications on the ethics and procedures of bird ringing and has in the latest poster attempted to show the interconnectedness of the SADC region’s bird population. For the general public and especially farming communities NARREC has developed and published numerous resource materials focusing on raptors as indicators of an ecosystem’s health. The publications assist with the identification of Namibia’s large birds of prey, owls and parrots and, importantly, on the risks and threats to wildlife populations when chemical poisons and pesticides are used indiscriminately. For Namibian school learners there are various posters and worksheets at the centre. The Ministry of Basic Education has recently approved a new publication from NARREC, “Where Birds are Prey”, as a Grade 6 English reader.

Vultures and Veterinary products
The global crisis for large scavenging birds of prey cannot be overemphasized. Not only are known threats to these species being amplified across countries and continents, but new threats are constantly emerging as well.
NARREC has recently approached all members of the Veterinary Association of Namibia to assist in the reduction of deaths by ingestion of veterinary products. You can read that document here.
