We also received 2 records from Sebastian and Sarah Tham via the online iOS app – we’re hoping to have an offline app for iOS released at some point this year so sit tight…

We are extremely grateful to Hichem Azafzaf and his team at Association “Les Amis des Oiseaux” (AAO), the ARDB’s regional coordinator for North Africa who have submitted 1,405 records for Tunisia! This is the ARDB’s first significant data for North Africa so marks a big milestone in the development of the database – the database can be viewed at http://gis.habitatinfo.com/java/ardb_viewing/ – thanks Hichem! We’re looking forward to receiving more for Tunisia and neighbouring countries.
