Four Degrees Yellow at 99About 40% of South Africa's population lives in the area covered by this map. It is the famous four degree squares centred on Gauteng. Because the pressure of development is so huge, we have made it one of SABAP2's priorities to get saturation coverage on an annual basis. We do this so that we can monitor trends in bird populations on an annual basis. So we try really hard to get every one of the 576 pentads in this region atlased every year. Today's awesome news is that there are only 99 unvisited pentads left.

This map shows 2014 coverage for the four degrees of Greater Gauteng (and also shows one row of pentads all the way round the edge - it would be nice to visit lots of these too, because they have been a bit neglected!!).

If you are an atlasers in this area, please make a plan to visit one of these 99 pentads.

There is a second challenge in the region. We are aiming to get an average of six checklists per pentad during 2014. Six times 576 is 3456. At the moment we have made 3032 checklists in the region. That's 88% of the target, and we are only 76% of the way through the year. We can smash the target by a massive margin.

This is a superlative team effort, Team SABAP2 Greater Gauteng
