Conservation Newsletter 37 "Birds and People"-Current Issues

People from all walks of life connect with birds in one way or another. I don’t know anyone who isn’t moved by their beauty and vitality, and the dawn chorus of awakening birds is a great way to start the day. Some people are inspired by birds’ ability to fly so effortlessly, while others find their varied behaviours interesting and worth studying. The incredible feats shown by migratory species which fly vast distances and call the world their oyster, are a source of wonderment to us all. Many birds are valued as food, and the bright feathers of some species are used for decoration or ceremonial purposes. Whatever your interest, birds share the planet with us and it will be a vastly impoverished world without them. Pete Hancock
