Something a little different this time in Cape Chatter No. 65. It might take you a little more time to read and digest and less flicking quickly through some images.
I am using the journeys of two of our most vulnerable local birds, the Hooded Plover and migratory wader, the Latham’s Snipe, to highlight the challenges they face to survive: their resilience and persistence to breed; to gain a better awareness of them by understanding their plight; and what we can all do as humans to give them a chance – and help save them from extinction.
I hope you can appreciate, albeit somewhat sad, their stories … and along the way, maybe give back a little bit to our natural world … it is good for the well-being of us humans and nature.
