In the autumn 2020 issue

Forest & Bird Autumn 2020 magazine cover featuring a jewelled gecko

In this bumper issue, we feature an exclusive interview with world-famous writer and environmental activist Margaret Atwood on why she is supporting Forest & Bird’s work. Ellen Ozarka investigates the issue of lizard poaching in New Zealand and asks whether enough is being done to protect our special geckos.

We look at Forest & Bird’s bold new plan for restoring nature and why we hope the next government will adopt these ambitious environmental policies. We report on the future of coal and ask why New Zealand’s mining industry seems to be booming.

Jayne Workman writes about Rātānui, a 1,000-year-old northern rātā in Forest & Bird’s Bushy Park Tarapuruhi sanctuary, while Harry Broad heads to Northland to interview kaumātua Kevin Prime about his conservation life, and Erin Maessen explains how she learned to love longfin eels.

All this plus Forest & Bird’s latest campaign news and wins, amazing albatrosses, how to calculate your family’s carbon footprint, coastal dune restoration, ethical investing, sustainable tourism, ghost fishing, and more.

Enjoy 2020’s new-look magazine with eight extra pages, and a more reader-friendly format.
