Indoor Meeting ‘Current conservation issues’ – Mark Avery

5 Oct 2017 - 19:30 to 22:00

at Wendover Memorial Hall, , Wendover (Lat/Long 51.7662 and -0.739901)

Don’t miss the Club’s top event of the year!
Dr Mark Avery is a renowned ornithologist, writer, blogger and environmental campaigner and a former director of conservation at
the RSPB. When we booked him to talk to the Bucks Bird Club, he deliberately left the title open as he didn’t
know what he would want to talk about specifically, but we can certainly expect an entertaining and thought-
provoking evening.
In the May 2015 edition of BBC Wildlife magazine, they published a list of the people most likely to make a
difference to the natural world in the next decade. It’s a list of those considered to have most potential influence
for good. Mark Avery found himself in 14th position.
Some comments about Mark from the national press include:
  • ‘fiercely intelligent’ The Guardian (Patrick Barkham)
  • ‘expert campaigner’ The Daily Telegraph (Charles Moore)
  • ‘a tireless and resolute voice for Britain’s embattled wildlife’ The Times (Melissa Harrison)
  • ‘Britain’s premier wildlife blogger’ The Independent (Michael McCarthy)
His website https://markavery.info covers a range of topics, particularly big on grouse shooting, but also
currently comments on the cost of offshore wind energy dropping below that of nuclear energy.
He’s published a number of books including “Remarkable Birds”, “Inglorious – Conflict in the Uplands”,
“Fighting for Birds – 25 years in nature conservation” and “A Message from Martha the extinction of the
passenger pigeon and its relevance today”.
