Fighting for Birds, Mark Avery

Mark Avery’s latest offering is an entertaining and informative romp through a lifetime spent in the conservation sector.

As someone who is just setting out in a career in the RSPB, and who has been a member of that organisation since the age of five, many parts of this book were touching and poignant.

Mark delicately examines the issues of policy advocacy, on the ground conservation, species reintroduction and the links between nature conservation and agriculture.

He also provides an entertaining personal history of his own career with the RSPB and ends with a look forward, asking how the conservation sector in the UK could become larger, stronger, more united and thereby more effective.

For anyone interested in nature, wildlife or conservation in the UK I would highly recommend this book.

It’s available here on Amazon.
