Welcome to the Coordinated Waterbird Counts (CWAC) website!

Across South Africa and Kenya citizen scientists conduct bi-annual counts of waterbirds at registered waterbodies. Counts are submitted on this website and the data is curated by the University of Cape Town's FitzPatrick Institute of African Ornithology.

CWAC was started in 1992 by the Animal Demography Unit as part South Africa's commitment to international waterbird conservation. Numerous counts are conducted each year, contributing to this unique dataset.
