WinGspan invites submissions

We are inviting submissions from members and the public for our next two issues! We are seeking new writing, art, and photography for our Spring/Summer 2020 issue which will be enjoyed by 7500 readers across BC. Browse our past issues at http://bit.ly/WINGSPAN.

While we welcome submissions on all themes related to our work, we do have special topics of focus for our 2020 issues.

1.

Conservation and Reconciliation

How can conservation be a platform for reconciliation and redress? How is Indigenous science impacting the historically Eurocentric conservation sector? What cross-cultural collaboration are having success on the ground and honouring Indigenous stewardship?

2.

Climate Change and Impacts on Birds

 

In our Fall/Winter 2019 issue, our feature article delved into the recent news of devastating bird species decline. Depending on the news/research source, causes included “loss of important lands and waters, unsustainable agricultural practices, climate change and pollution”, and “urban development, predation from outdoor cats, collisions with buildings and windows, and widespread pesticide use”. What stories can be shared about effective ways to address this decline – through habitat protection, stewardship and restoration; helping the natural world thrive and be resilient; through policy and system change?

Submission guidelines

We are seeking research write-ups, short articles and feature- length stories with a scope anywhere in BC, or birding globally; length between 600- 3500 words. Art and Illustrations must be submitted in high resolution, 300dpi as jpg, png, tif, or eps files. Email your submission, or queries, to wingspan@wildbirdtrust.org.

Deadlines: Spring 2020 issue: March 21; Fall 2020 issue: October 15.
