We’re marking our 60th birthday by celebrating great British nature spots

It’s our birthday – we’re having a party and you’re all invited

PAUL McGUINNESS, EDITOR

When the first issue of this magazine was published, Harold Macmillan was Prime Minister, The Beatles had yet to release their first LP, and Zoo Quest was coming to the end of its run as David Attenborough’s first major series for the BBC. Sixty years on and we’re still here – albeit having gone through one or two changes since Armand Denis launched the magazine under its then-title Animals. To celebrate our diamond jubilee, we asked 60 of our friends and colleagues in the wildlife world to nominate their favourite wild place in the UK. Their choices only serve to highight the wonderful diversity of life on these islands – see page 42. And now it’s over to you. We want you to have your say as we look to find Britain’s favourite wild place – the panel on the left tells you how you can vote. Here’s to the next 60 years!
