Mya-Rose Craig: Birdgirl in conversation with Stephen Moss.
Mya-Rose is a birder, environmentalist and diversity activist. Her new book Birdgirl tells her remarkable story. A journey defined by her love for these extraordinary creatures. Because large and small, brown, patterned, jewelled or featherless, there is something about birds that makes us, even for just moments at a time, lift our eyes away from our lives and up to the skies. Every single bird a treasure. Each sighting a small step in her family journey – a collective moment of joy and stillness amidst her mother’s deepening mental health crisis. And each helping her to find her voice.
Since she was a baby, she has visited every continent to pursue her passion, seeing first hand the carelessness, inequality and destruction we are inflicting on our fragile planet. And the simple, mindful act of looking for birds has made her ever-more determined to campaign for all our survival.
Stephen Moss, was the original producer of the Bafta-winning Springwatch, best-selling nature writer and President of Somerset Wildlife Fund.
