Description:

Using the archives: To know where you are going, you must know where you have been. Reviewing archival news media for information on Namibia's marine life.

Summary / Notes:

In a data poor area such as the Namibian coastline, archived newspapers can be a priceless source of information. In search of historical records about the marine life off the Namibian coast, especially recordings of whale and dolphin strandings, the Namibian Dolphin Project (NDP) looked at the archives of the Namib Times newspaper held at Walvis Bay Municipal library. A review of newspapers from 1965 to 2012 provided some interesting findings.
