The Livingstone Museum has active research departments. The Natural History Department has been carrying out biannual waterbird monitoring in Livingstone under Wetlands International’s African-Eurasian Waterfowl Census programme since 1993. The results are sent to a central coordinator who compiles them on behalf of Wetlands International. Every year in both the wet season and the dry season, a count is carried out at 6 sites in the Livingstone-Victoria Falls area. Volunteers are invited to join in, and the activity attracts both amateur and expert birders from within and beyond the local community. We are particularly grateful to our long-term partners in this project, the Department of National Parks and Wildlife, Savannah Southern Safaris and Taonga Safaris. If you are interested in joining in or finding out more about this programme, please get in touch with our Ornithologist, Maggie Mwale.
