|Rachel Carson is said to have sparked the modern day environmental movement with the publication of Silent Spring in 1962. She made vivid the gloomy prospect of life without birdsong. But have her warnings been heeded?Fifty years on, Conor Mark Jameson reflects on the growth of environmentalism since Silent Spring in his own book, ‘Silent Spring Revisited’. In his talk, Conor will explore the wildlife conservation situation since 1962, drawing upon his experiences and observations from two decades of working in the field, as well as attempting to answer the important question: are we silencing the spring?
Conor Jameson works for the RSPB and has contributed to numerous wildlife magazines including the RSPB magazine and BBC Wildlife. In 2010 he won the BBC Wildlife Nature Writer of the Year award with his article, Phantom about an encounter with a goshawk in Berlin.
