what people are saying

EJ Milner-Gulland

Tasso Leventis Professor of Biodiversity and Head of the Department of Zoology at the University of Oxford, and Director of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science

Current Conservation is unique—a vibrant mix of art and science that combines creativity with rigour. The mix draws you in—you start by being tempted in by one article and end up reading all sorts of fascinating stories, and enjoying the wonderful original artworks. I love that it is both grounded in a place and a conservation community, and looking outwards to international readers and issues. Keep up the wonderful work, I’m sure you will go from strength to strength.

Rohini Nilekani

Writer, author and philanthropist

It’s been a pleasure to be a part of Current Conservation's journey from a Bangalore-based magazine to a publication that's making a global mark in conservation. The success of CC as a platform where 'art meets science' is evident with more and more conservation organisations opting to communicate their message through art. As a pioneer in this space, CC continues to make great strides.

Romulus Whitaker

Founder of the Madras Snake Park, ANET, and the Madras Crocodile Bank Trust

When the first issue of Current Conservation came out in July 2007 it was so pleasing to see an article about the herps of Little Nicobar nestled in with serious conservation writing from across the world and 50+ issues later CC continues to be a must-read update on vital subjects. Showcasing exciting talent, the magazine pioneered conservation art and design, enhancing the reading experience.

Vance G. Martin

President, WILD Foundation, Chairman, Wilderness Specialist Group (IUCN/WCPA)

We have an urgent job on our hands to protect life on Earth, and we need to communicate the issues and solutions in new ways. Current Conservation really understands this, and is a leader in conveying what we need to know in an innovative, engaging and effective manner. I like it!
