A total of 1,228 IBAs cover 7% of the African region. A comprehensive network of IBAs has been identified across the 58 countries and territories of the African region. The effective protection and management of these sites, a relatively low percentage of the area of each country, is a realistic goal that would make a significant contribution to the conservation of many bird species.

The series of links (below) take you through the various section of the Important Bird Areas in Africa and Associated Islands publication.
