About the Host

Grant Williams is a Bird Nerd, and has been an advocate for the birds under pressure from habitat reduction, pollution, pesticides, poaching and smuggling and the loss of biodiversity due to climate change.

All his life he has been intensely interested in the birds around him, and yearned to travel to far off places to learn more about the birds, the people who live with them, and the people who study them and protect them.

Studying horticulture and accounting, instead of ornithology, it seemed a perfect entre to the world of podcasting and content creation. The picture above shows Grant attempting to interview a pair of hornbills in Bali in 2014. He now chooses better guests, and has honed his technical abilities.

Join Grant and meet some of the heroes in bird conservation, research and positive action, while learning about some of the most vulnerable species in the world.
