Michael Henderson is going to talk about two very different areas, both rich with wonderful birdlife. He is a director for sustainable development at global engineering firm AECOM, associate lecturer in sustainable development at Oxford Brookes University and founder of Raptor Retreats birding holidays. While COVID has decimated the travel industry, Michael is keen to continue to celebrate the amazing diversity of birdlife around the world and the dedicated people that are working hard to protect them. In his talk, Michael will focus on:
- The Bribri people of Kakoldi in Costa Rica and the annual raptor migration
- The birds of Rajasthan, decline of Indian vultures and the work of the Jatayu breeding and release centre.
As we are unable to hold meetings indoors due to covid precautions, this meeting will be held online via Zoom. Members will be sent the Zoom link by email a few days before the talk.
