Selfie scourge

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - OUR WILD WORLD -

Sarah McPher­son’s ar­ti­cle on self­ies (Self­ies: the un­seen shame, Au­gust 2019) was an eye-opener. It in­formed me of this rel­a­tively less-known scourge that peo­ple who would re­coil at harm­ing wildlife un­wit­tingly in­dulge in. I have never done so, but only be­cause I do not like tak­ing self­ies – my pho­tog­ra­phy is usu­ally of land­scapes. Since sub­scrib­ing to this mag­a­zine, I am at­tracted to pho­tograph­ing more an­i­mals and, thanks to the ar­ti­cle, I now know how to do so safely and with­out caus­ing wildlife the slight­est dis­tress. This ar­ti­cle also prompted me to set up a monthly do­na­tion to an in­ter­na­tional an­i­mal wel­fare

or­gan­i­sa­tion – not much, but I reckon ev­ery lit­tle helps. Marc De­laney, via email
