Here's what Mike had to say about the release;
"The main purpose of the book is to celebrate such a uniquely wonderful place in the hope that it will inspire others to care for Skomer and for our natural environment. It really is a book for the thousands of people who visit the island, an attempt to help them gain a deeper understand of the complexities and wonder of its wildlife.
As I began working on the manuscript, I came to realise that I wanted to write for a much wider audience. I wanted an opportunity to share the delightful experience of Skomer with as many people as possible. I wanted the text to be accessible to all, but, even so, I was not prepared to sacrifice the relevance of the book to knowledgeable amateurs and professionals.
I hope that my typical reader will be someone who enjoys the countryside, who perhaps occasionally visits nature reserves and would like to know a little more about conservation management and the decisions that we must make." Mike Alexander.
Skomer Island is a must read for wildlife enthusiasts, Skomer Island fans and more.
