Conservationist Stephen Awoyemi talks to Andy Gosler about his first close encounter with birds
Stephen Awoyemi is a conservation biologist who in 2012 had been inspired by nature enough to want to conserve it, but without having had much first-hand experience of it. He travelled from Ibadan to Joss to meet Andy Gosler, who was visiting the A.P. Leventis Ornithological Research Institute (APLORI): https://aplori.org/ . On 12 December they went bird ringing and Stephen got to release a bird for the first time. The experience made a deep impression on him, as revealed in this short interview. The species here named were all ringed that morning with Stephen.
