Represented on this poster are 99 species of inland waterbirds illustrated by Kenneth Newman. For years man has been ‘reclaiming’ marshlands by draining them, and ‘controlling’ inland waterways through canalization and damming. The effect is always to largely destroy such areas as habitats for the abundant and infinitely varied plant and natural life forms which originally inhabited them. More recently, unfortunate farming practices and increasing industrialization have lead to chemical and toxic effluent pollution of many of Africa's rivers and streams and the areas into which they flow, with equally disastrous effects upon the delicately balanced ecosystems of these areas. On the positive side, much effort is currently being directed to the preservation – and restoration – of many of Africa's existing wetland areas.

Bird Families Include:
Bittern, cormorant, crake, duck, egret, flamingo, flufftail, gallinule, goose, grebe, heron, ibis, jacana, kingfisher, moorhen, pelican, plover, sandpiper, snipe, stork, teal and tern.
