Discover and learn
Duration: 15 to 20 minutes
Love nature? You'll love Nature's Voice, our award-winning podcast. Each month we'll bring you features, interviews and news of birds and wildlife, from back gardens to the Sumatran rainforest.
If you can't get enough, try dipping into our back catalogue. We'll take you soaring with birds of prey, look back over 30 years of Big Garden Birdwatch, offer wildlife gardening advice and hear from celebrity wildlife lovers like Bill Oddie and Kate Humble.
To make sure you get each new edition as soon as it’s published, why not become a subscriber? It's free and simple!
Please note: As of Oct 2014 we are focusing our limited resources on producing podcasts with more of the stuff you - our listeners - enjoy. This means fewer podcasts will be produced so in some months no podcast will be published, but we hope to produce nine each year.

EU legislation – the Birds and Habitats Directives – which protect the most important wildlife species and habitats in the UK and Europe are being reviewed and at risk of being weakened. On this month's nature's voice, Jane Markham visits the RSPB's heathland reserve at Arne in Dorset, one of the world's rarest habitats, and a place which is protected thanks to the Birds and Habitats Directives. She also speaks to Alistair Taylor, the RSPB's Senior Policy Officer for Nature Directives, and looks at the Defend Nature campaign, which is how you can help protect the laws which protect nature.
