Guano Platform

Part of the Guano Platform on Bird Island. The guano collected from the platform is considered high quality for its high nitrogen content relative to other guano collection facilities in the region. It is cleaned in Swakopmund to remove feathers and other debris, ground to a powder, and exported to Belgium. The platforms are between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay in the Erongo Region of Namibia, Africa.
