I am Dr. Mya-Rose Craig

I am a 19-year-old prominent British-Bangladeshi ornithologist, environmentalist, diversity activist as well as a writer, speaker and broadcaster.

My Story

I am a prominent birder, naturalist, conservationist, environmentalist and race activist. At age 11 I started the popular blog Birdgirl, and at age 17 I became the youngest person to see half of the birds in the world.
