Tell us about yourself
BBC Wildlife began life as Animals Magazine, launched in January 1963 by filmmaker Armand Denis. In his editor's welcome letter, Denis wrote “The world must now wake up to the terrible danger that many wild animals face. We do not want our children’s grandchildren to ask: ‘What was a wild animal?’" - a statement that still resonates today. The determination to alert readers to the most pressing local, national and global conservation issues is the thread that has run through the various incarnations of the magazine over the following five decades.
