Second edition launch for local authors

Algarve Wildlife – the natural year has been one of the most successful books in the Algarve since it was first published in 2009. Best-selling author and naturalist Clive Viney has teamed up with renowned wildlife photographer Ray Tipper to produce an Algarve wildlife guide in two-week periods throughout the natural year. Written in clear non-scientific language, this book will appeal to both visitors and residents alike who want to learn more about the wildlife of the region.

The second edition will be launched at the “Mediterranean Gardening Association – Portugal’s International Spring Conference”, which will be held at Vila Galé Lagos Hotel between April 22 and 25.

Author Clive Viney will give a talk on the wildlife of the region, highlighting the best times and places to find the numerous creatures and plants that live alongside us in the Algarve.

Contributors Ron Porley and Steve Hencher will also be available to answer questions, as will Sue Parker who manages Algarvewildlife.com and Pat O’Reilly, author of Fascinated by Fungi.

The launch will take place at 10am on Sunday, April 24 and books, signed by the authors, will be available at €25.
