Hello, welcome to my website.

I first learned about the Great Auk when I was a child, after hearing stories about it from my dad. I was intrigued by this extinct bird and often wondered what they would have been like hence, many years later, Aukid was born.

 

The fact the these birds were made extinct back in the 19th century as a result of human greed resonated with me, especially as so many birds and animals are still endangered. Puffins are at risk of this happening, which is why Park has been teamed up with Aukid.

 

As an ex-english teacher, writing is a passion of mine and I would like to encourage this with the younger generation as much as making people more aware about species being at risk or becoming endangered
