Illustration for Current Conservation

Current Conservation magazine recently launched its kids' issue in which I illustrate a section that describes a typical day in the lives of ecologists. The first in the series is George Swan, a PhD student at Exeter University in the UK, who studies my favourite group of birds- raptors! The illustrations describe how George goes about setting up nest cameras in a buzzard's nest.
