← Back to Working for Water: The Bangweulu Wetlands and Africa’s Shoebill…

“Little is known about the distribution of the shoebills throughout the Bangweulu Wetlands. Data from recent aerial surveys should shed a light on the favourite habitat of the shoebills and their presence in relation to human activities. Preliminary results indicate that shoebills prefer areas with little human presence. The question is whether they avoid humans or whether the swamps there are too impenetrable for people.”
