Wildlife Column in the Irish Independent

Weekend MagazineStop the presses!

News just in that I’m going to be writing a regular wildlife column for the Irish Independent newspaper.

I’m still finalising the details in terms of column frequency and other logistics with the Independent’s editorial team, but the first column, dubbed “Unseasonal Shenanigans” will feature on page 21 of the newspaper’s Weekend Magazine this Saturday, 04 February. I’ll also be publishing an archive of the column here on the Ireland’s Wildlife website website soon after it’s appeared in the print edition.

While I’m sure the content of the column will evolve over time based on your feedback and ideas from the Independent’s editorial team, the current focus is on encouraging people to engage with the natural world around them, highlighting and commenting on wildlife related issues in the news, and perhaps, if appropriate, the occasional book or gear review to mix things up a bit.

The Ireland’s Wildlife website, the page on Facebook and the Twitter account provides an ideal established platform for engagement and interaction, a rich seam of ideas and inspiration and a wonderful opportunity to get real feedback on the column from readers. Conversely the column will hopefully help more people to discover and join the thriving online wildlife community we’re building together. It’s very much a win-win.

I’m incredibly excited about this opportunity, and look forward to hearing what you all think in due course. So check out Page 21 of the Irish Independent’s Weekend Magazine this Saturday  — and don’t forget to come back here and let me know what you think!
