About the author: Bridget Stutchbury was born in Montreal and raised in Toronto. She completed her M.Sc. at Queen’s University and her Ph.D. at Yale, and was a postdoctoral fellow at the Smithsonian Institution. She is a professor and Canada Research Chair in Ecology and Conservation Biology at York University, Toronto.
Since the 1980s,she has followed songbirds to their wintering grounds in Latin America and back to their breeding grounds in North America to understand their behaviour, ecology and conservation. She is author of the book Silence of the Songbirds.
Earlier this month, I introduced you to Birds & Beans bird friendly certified organic coffee. They’re now sponsoring a giveaway for a great book that gives a voice to the issue of songbird conservation and environmental issues as a whole.
Human behavior directly impacts the environment. Some manmade disasters are easy to spot – the current nuclear issues in Japan, the BP oil spill in the gulf…. Other human choices may seem smaller and insignificant, but added together they have a big, negative impact on the health of the earth.
Stutchbury has done extensive research on how we are losing the world’s songbirds and what this means for the environment.
The book is very informative and inspiring. It’s important for us to make wise decisions regarding our own personal actions and the products that we purchase.
