Subject: Paradise Parrot article



I’ve just had a piece on the extinction of the Paradise Parrot published in The Conversation. You can read it here: It’s an apt day for it: it’s the 100th anniversary of the species’ rediscovery by Cyril Jerrard. (Actually, that’s tomorrow, but today is as close as The Conversation could arrange.)

Share the article as much as you like, however you like. Add a comment too, if you want to.

My latest book, Idling in Green Places: A life of Alec Chisholm, was shortlisted for the 2020 National Biography Award.

My latest Conversation piece is on the intertwined history of birdwatching and conservation.

My latest article, published in Arcadia, is on ‘The Tragedy of the Paradise Parrot’.
