19-year-old wildlife conservationist Alex Chapman is launching the Shaftesbury Bird and Wildlife Group.
His project partners include the Dorset Bird Club. The new club will connect people through their shared interest and arrange workshops and events.
Alex has joined our team of Alfred contributors and will be presenting regular updates on group activities and wildlife sightings. He explains what this new organisation can offer you if you’re interested in nature.
