Benedict Macdonald is a field naturalist and wildlife film-maker who grew up watching birds and wildlife vanish around him every year. During his extensive global travel experience he’s found inspiring examples of why such declines are entirely avoidable. This book is Benedict’s attempt to ensure that his generation, for the first time in thousands of years, leaves British wildlife better off, not worse, than the generation before him.

Benedict is a long-time conservation writer for Birdwatching magazine, as well as a contributor to RSPB Nature’s Home and BBC Wildlife Magazine, and an assistant producer in natural history television including for Netflix and the BBC.
