About this book

Ask someone to name a famous woman in the world of fauna conservation and they would probably mention Jane Goodall for her work with chimpanzees. Then ask that person to name a woman who had achieved great things in bird conservation, and they would probably give you a blank look. Yet women have made and continue to make truly remarkable achievements.

All over the world, women are working in bird conservation -- usually without the recognition they deserve, despite dedicating their lives to birds, often at considerable personal cost. They work in the field, campaign against the illegal wildlife trade and educate people in sensitive areas regarding the important role that birds play as part of the biodiversity of their locality and of the planet. This book is full of inspirational women including those who have played an important role in bird conservation and even in bird rescue centres. Their stories and those of the birds they saved will touch your heart. The book also covers social issues such as discrimination against women working in the field.

This book shines a spotlight on more than 30 of these female heroes. It encourages women to be inspired by their stories and to make their own contributions to saving wonderful feathered creatures from extinction.

"[...] In summary, this remarkable volume is well-written and easily read, illuminating and educational, and should be on every parrot-lover's bookshelf. It gives a great insight into the lives and input of some of the major female characters involved in the conservation of birds since the middle of the 19th century until the present day."
– Alan K Jones, BVetMed MRCVS, Parrots Magazine, May 2022

"If you are looking for an uplifting read through the cold dark nights of the winter this book will not only tick the box but will also leave you deeply inspired, impressed and in awe by what can only be described as a group of elite superheroes, women both past and present who have battled copious challenges and obstacles to fulfil their dreams, ambitions and passions. The result of their work as individuals is vast, increasing knowledge and awareness of avian species, husbandry, saving lives and even species from certain extinction. Put them together in a group and the impact their work has had on a global scale is colossal. [...] The book is highly readable and does justice to all the women featured. Over the years Rosemary has met several of the individuals she has written about so is able to give a more personal insight."
– Louise Peat, Avicultural Magazine
