Why is the Hen Harrier almost extinct in England?
About the author
Arjun Amar’s PhD focussed on the cause of the Hen Harrier decline on Orkney. Following this he undertook a post-doc with the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust working on research aimed at helping to resolve the Hen Harrier – Red Grouse conflict and on understanding habitat use by the species on Scottish Special Protection Areas. Arjun worked for the RSPB between 2005-2011 as a Senior Conservation Scientist where his research included exploring the impact of grouse moor management on raptors and wader populations. Since 2011 he has been a Senior Lecturer at the Percy FitzPatrick institute at the University of Cape Town, where he continues research on raptor conservation.
