Find out more about saving endangered species, with Exonian Stanley Johnson

Zoologists and those interested in sustainability and the natural world, may like to know that Stanley Johnson (1959, English) has a new book coming out, Survival: Saving endangered migratory species.

Migratory species are some of the most vulnerable on the planet – their international journeys expose them to threats including habitat degradation and climate change. This new book, co-authored by Stanley Johnson and Robert Vagg, looks at ways in which we can help to protect “nature’s true explorers”.

In connection with the book’s publication, The Zoological Society of London and the UN Environment Programme’s Convention on Migratory Species will present an evening of talks entitled “Saving endangered migratory species” on June 24th. In addition to the two authors, speakers will also include Elizabeth Maruma Mrema, Executive Secretary, UNEP/CMS Secretariat and Paul Pearce-Kelly, Senior Curator at ZSL. The talk will be followed by a book-signing. There will also be a launch party at Waterstone’s in Notting Hill on Wednesday 30th June.

The authors are donating all their royalties to the United Nations Environment Programme’s convention on migratory species.
