Ethno-ornithology World Atlas
The Ethno-ornithology World Atlas is a space for community-curated bird and ecological knowledge in many languages. Founded on the recognition that humans everywhere are inspired culturally, practically and spiritually by birds, EWA is about building relationships between indigenous and local communities, conservationists, academics, and their institutions, to promote bird conservation through the engagement with, respect for and celebration of diverse cultural traditions of knowledge. EWA is a collaboration between Oxford University’s Department of Zoology, the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography, and BirdLife International. The EWA Research Group in the University of Oxford consists of graduate students, post-doctoral researchers and faculty members spanning the life and social sciences, working on interdisciplinary topics encompassing Anthropology, Ornithology, Geography and Linguistics.
