Island Conservation Society has released a new book to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the protection of Aride Island as a Special Reserve. The book entitled “Aride Island – Tread Lightly” was launched at the British High Commission on Thursday 16th June 2016 at the same time as the celebration of the birthday of Queen Elizabeth II.
The book is compiled and edited by Tim Sands and Adrian Skerrett, with contributions from many writers, artists and photographers including locally Pierre-Andre Adam, Katie Beaver, Melinda Curran, Lindsay Chong Seng, Pat Matyot, Juan Michel, Jeanne Mortimer, Uzice Samedi and Gerard Rocamora. It contains a message from President James Michel and a Foreword by James Cadbury, whose father Christopher provided the funds to purchase Aride in 1973 on behalf of Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts in UK.
