ABA Magazine’s article about me and the Sundarbans oil spill
The American Birding Association has got a huge membership and has a quarterly magazine. The Magazine just out is called “Birders’ Guide to Conservation and Community” with lots of brilliant articles about sex, race and getting young people into nature.
Noah Strycker (last year’s Big World Year winner, seeing over 6000 birds in the year) has written an article about my highlighting the environmentally disastrous Sundarbans oil spill in Bangladesh. Thank you Noah for your lovely article. The article about me is on pages 9 – 10 http://bit.ly/1YqRDfx
The 2016 issue of Birder’s Guide to Conservation & Community is at the printers. American Birding Association members should find it in their mailboxes in the next couple weeks. But you don’t have to wait until then to see what’s inside. You can see the entirety of this issue of Birder’s Guide right now. Simply click here. (Birder’s Guide is just one of the free resources that the ABA provides to the birding public.)
“Conservation Milestones” is back. It highlights the real accomplishments of birders like you. Look out for Birdgirl Mya-Rose Craig on pages 9 -10.
At the heart of this issue are efforts to increase inclusion and remove barriers to participation in birding. A diverse suite of contributors shared their thoughts on women in birding, and Jennifer Rycenga expounded on the formation of GBNA, our region’s informal LGBT birding club.
A recurring theme from past issues is the importance of cultivating the next generation of conservationists. Tiffany Kersten talks about the importance of starting young in this issue, and Jennie Duberstein reports to us about ongoing efforts in northwest Mexico.
