Title: Avian Influenza and Wild Birds in Africa: Ecology & Monitoring PDF
Url: http://www.cirad.fr/en/our-research/research-results/2010/wildfowl-and...
Publisher: CIRAD
Description: In order to control and understand the spread of Avian Influenza in Africa, Cirad, a French organization that addresses international agricultural and development issues has created a website full of great features. There is a section on "Satellite Tracking", a "Surveillance Program", and a "Monitoring Program". Visitors can just click on the pictures next to the descriptions to go directly to the link. The Satellite Tracking feature allows visitors to follow the water birds, including four wild duck species, with an interactive Google map or JPG maps. The "Material/Method" link under Satellite Tracking gives a thorough explanation, along with photos, of the solar-powered satellite platform transmitting transmitters fitted on the four duck species. Visitors will find the Monitoring Program offers information about the "need of understanding the role of avifauna and domestic poultry in the transmission and the maintenance of the [Avian Influenza] virus. " Overall, this is a site that is well done and visually compelling in its layout and design.
