LIST OF PELAGIC SPECIES OFF CAPE TOWN

Posted on the 22nd December 2012

(I am currently working on a new PowerPoint presentation on birding in the Western Cape Province.  I drew up a list of pelagic species seen off Cape Town for one of the slides and thought that the list is so impressive that it just had to be loaded.  We report on pelagic cruises regularly on this website.  Ensure that you read this and that you participate in such cruises when the fairest Cape is next visited.  Images by BirdLife Overberg member Carin Malan. - Ed.)
