Birdfair: A look back at ‘next generation conservation’

Ahead of Virtual Birdfair 2020, take a look back at the Next generation conservation debate: Should Nature Work for Us Or Should We Work for Nature?

‘This is our world’: walk among nature’s giants!

An elephant towers above my head; just a few footsteps away a mother giraffe stands protectively over her young calf. From this vantage point I can see a closely camouflaged lioness stalking a skittish zebra. I’m not on safari in Africa though; I’m standing in the Royal Horticultural Halls in central London, surrounded by lifesized acrylic paintings of animals in their natural habitats.
