BirdLife, the magazine

BirdLife, the magazine is produced by BirdLife International.

Launched in June 2016, it replaced World Birdwatch and covers bird- and wildlife-conservation stories worldwide.

I write regularly for the magazine.

This piece about the destruction wrought by the cage bird trade on Indonesia's songbirds, rendering far too many of them globally threatened,  appeared in the December issue of BirdLife magazine, and also on the BirdLife website, where it can be read for free.

Published online first in February 2018, then available in the hard-copy magazine from March, is my article on funds from the 2018 British Birdwatching Fairsupporting the creation of a fabulous new National Park in Argentina - called Ansenuma, and located at Mar Chiquita - which will help conserve hundreds of thousands flamingos and even more migratory waders.

Here is an article about how agriculture has become the principal threat to the world's birds. Published in June 2018.

Here is an article I wrote to celebrate the 10th anniversary of BirdLife's Preventing Extinctions Programme. Published in October 2018. You can read it online here.

In the January-March 2018 issue, I wrote an article unravelling the world's great bird mysteries.
