Data request

Some of the spatial datasets underpinning the Soaring Bird Sensitivity Tool can be made available to governments, researchers and conservation practitioners for non-commercial use. IBA data and species distribution data (digitized maps) are available for non-commercial use in ESRI shapefile format for use in GIS mapping software.
