HANZAB Acknowledgments

Norman Wettenhall was the driving force behind the publication of The Handbook of Australian, New Zealand and Antarctic Birds (HANZAB). He had a great talent for attracting funds and was associated with much of the $8 million dollars collected for this project. Sadly, Norman passed away after five volumes of this ornithological masterpiece were published. Margaret Ross AM and Lady Marigold Southey AC continued to drive the project and ensured the remaining two volumes were completed in his memory.

Key partners in the publication of HANZAB are acknowledged in the volumes. BirdLife Australia also wishes to thank Margaret Ross for helping BirdLife Australia ensure HANZAB continues to support science-based bird conservation with this online resource.
