As a child in 1963, I first became aware that all was not well with our beautiful planet. I know this sounds like rather a young age (I was six years old) to be concerned with wildlife but my passion for pictures, collecting and animals and birds was the reason. Friends and family likened me to a young Gerry Durrell!
The Brooke Bond PG Tips tea cards were one of the reasons for my new awareness. When I was a kid everybody collected them and our thirst for knowledge was very great. If you got duplicates, you swapped them in the school yard. The series “Wildlife in Danger” was presented by Sir Peter Scott (September 14, 1909– August 29, 1989).
