LAMIBA (Local Area Monitoring of Important Bird Areas)

LAMIBA is a specially tailored programme to train birdwatchers in the identification and monitoring of birds for the conservation of Important Bird Areas (IBA) in Malaysia.
BirdLife Partners from Denmark (DOF) and MNS Selangor Branch Bird Group helped to train the first batch of LAMIBA trainers which comprised Branch Bird Group members and MNS staff. Subsequently, these trainers conducted State workshops to further strengthen or initiate their respective bird groups. Data collected from monitoring exercises are valuable contributions towards conservation.
Anyone interested in contributing towards conserving IBAs and learning more about bird monitoring can participate in the programme by joining the MNS Branch Bird Groups. For further queries please
