Lesser Flamingos are amongst Africa’s most attractive birds. They are highly gregarious, occurring in large flocks when feeding and breeding. The main breeding area is at Lake Natron, in the Great Rift Valley in Tanzania. They also breed at three wetlands in southern Africa, and in South Asia. 

Although the population is estimated to number more than 2 million birds, they have apparently been in steady decline due to habitat loss and disturbance. Conservation interventions are therefore necessary to reverse the negative population trend.

BirdLife South Africa, with assistance from Ekapa Minerals, the Sol Plaatje University and othe partners, is actively involved in monitoring and conserving Lesser Flamingos at Kamfers Dam, where they breed in small numbers. 

Through our research and conservation, we hope to contribute to the conservation of Kamfers Dam, an Important Bird and Biodiversity Area. Conservation, monitoring and research actions include the monitoring of breeding flamingos, the analysis of water quality, addressing threats to the birds (for example collision with power lines and other infrastructure), liaison with the landowners of Kamfers Dam, and the implementation of responsible tourism.  

Please consider donating money to the important conservation work which is being undertaken to conserve Kamfers Dam, its flamingos and other biodiversity. With your contribution we hope to make a real difference and ensure the future survival of this charismatic species!
