Sing for Songbirds | Chester Zoo

This year I had the pleasure of working alongside Chester Zoo on their “Singing for Songbirds” campaign.

In parts of South East Asia, the tradition of capturing and caging songbirds is still very popular. This practice initially led to the critical engagerment of just a few prized songbirds, including the Javan Green Magpie, Black Winged Starling, and Bali Starling.

Tragically, the capture of wild songbirds for this tradition is unsustainable, and now encompasses all birds, irrelevant of colour, song, size and most importantly conservation status.

I was thrilled when I was contacted by Chester Zoo and asked to write and record a song to help create more awareness about the threats to songbirds, and to inspire young conservationists.

*** This song will soon be available as a charity download. All proceeds will go directly to the Sing for Songbirds conservation effort.
