Ben Hoare is Features Editor of BBC Wildlife Magazine, which luckily also happens to be his dream job. He joined the prestigious Bristol-based magazine in 2008, after 12 years as a freelance natural-history book editor and author, and stints volunteering for the RSPB and BirdLife International. One of his books, Animal Migration: Remarkable Journeys in the Wild, was published by the Natural History Museum in 2009. He is a well-travelled birder and has finally achieved his ambition to see the world’s smallest bird, the delightful bee hummingbird. In 2015, he was awarded the British Trust for Ornithology’s Dilys Breese Medal. One day, he will write an award-winning book about nature, but until then he is happy editing other people’s words.
