Country checklist and status


We are delighted that our Corporate Sponsor iGoTerra has made its country checklists, including subspecies (IOC or Clements) as well as all other species groups like mammals, butterflies etc. available through the ABC website. The only thing required is a Basic membership / registration which is free of charge. Go to Guinea-Bissau checklists. If you are already a member of iGoTerra, you will be taken directly to the country page. In case you are not a member, you will be redirected automatically to the registration form and from there can go straight to the country page..

A checklist of 518 species for Guinea-Bissau is provided in the Important Bird Areas in Guinea-Bissau (DODMAN, T. et al 2004).

The country checklist for Guinea-Bissau can also be downloaded in a spreadsheet from this link: Guinea-Bissau checklist
