It is with the utmost regret that I must record the passing of our founder, President Emeritus and friend of so many in the World Pheasant Association, on Sunday 17th March, after a short illness.  He will be sorely missed by so many friends and colleagues.

CBAG - new Ringing Scheme for WPA Members

WPA will have a stand at the Global Birdfair, Rutland, Near Oakham, LE15 8RN, daily entry fee £15, from Friday 12 to Sunday 14 July and is a great opportunity to share ideas, experiences, knowledge and publicise WPA.  The event aims to give organisations who contribute to the survival of many species a place to talk about how they are making a difference, wherever they are in the world.  We also have a lecture slot at the Birdfair – Marcy Summers, Director of ALTO (the Alliance for Tompotika Conservation), conservation biologist with 20 years’ experience working in Indonesia will talk about how community-based conservation is helping the recovery of the maleo in Sulawesi. The project continues existing efforts to facilitate increases in maleo populations in the wild, and to continue outreach that builds popular understanding and support for maleo conservation.
We hope you will come along to support the Global Birdfair. Tickets are available from:
