Sri Lanka Birds, web based data entry system for Sri Lanka (www.worldbirds.org/srilanka) reached another milestone yesterday. Number of bird observations recorded in the system reached 20,000 marking the success of the system. This is very important achievement for the conservation of Birds in Sri Lanka. Members achieved this within a period of less than one year. 'Sri Lanka Birds' was launched on 7th December last year with three other web sites dedicated to dissiminate information on birds, Important bird Areas and FOGSL.
Current statistics describing the number of visits, number of observations and bird species recorded, as well as the number of users registered in the system, are displayed on the login page of ‘Sri Lanka Birds’ - www.worldbirds.org/srilanka.
FOGSL wishes to thank all the members who contribute to the system by providing their valuable observations.
