This mission has been implemented in the framework of the GRIPAVI project in order to provide a support to the component Ecology and Epidemiology of Avian Influenza Virus (AIV) in Wild Birds of the Zimbabwean Observatory, and in particular to provide some scientific and technical inputs the two Gripavi PhD candidates, Josphine Mundava and Alexandre Caron. This mission also provided the opportunity to participate to the symposium "Wild birds and avian influenza in Africa" of the 12m Pan-African Ornithological Congress in Cape Town - South Africa, and to present past and current research activities on host ecology of AIV in tropical ecosystem, and in particular the Gripavi project to a large international audience of ecologists and ornithologists. It also provided the opportunity to organise a meeting with the team of the Percy Fitz Patrick Institute (University of Cape Town) that develop similar research activities on wild birds and AIV in southern Africa and to discuss potential for collaboration.
