    I am the author of the book The Birds of the Mascarenes, published on 23 Dec 2012.
    The project was the work of a lifetime; it involved photographing the different species of birds unique to the Mascarene Islands in their natural habitat to ensure readers could view them in their proper environment. I believe I have published an extremely useful book, not only for the present generation, but also for generations to come. As well as illustrating the splendour of the birdlife of the Mascarene Islands. The book will serve as a unique work of reference for professional ornithologists and educational establishments such as schools and universities. In addition, amateur bird lovers will be able to admire and appreciate rare images of some of the world’s most extraordinary wildlife.
    New released first book of its kind “ The Birds of the Mascarene”, a hard cover with 360 pages A4 fully illustrated with approximately over 300 photos embraced of all the rare and endangered species such as the Endemic, Oceanic, and the Exotic birds of several islands known as the Mascarenes. One of the main aims of this work is to help to ensure the survival of a precious, but fragile, natural heritage by encouraging a growing appreciation of these beautiful creatures. Some of these birds are under threat and we cannot be sure that they won’t one day become extinct. Hopefully, we can learn from the sad fate of the famous Dodo, which has become a symbol of the island of Mauritius where it lived in blissful isolation until the coming of man. The book includes a complete list of the extinct birds of the Mascarenes and much more.
    It has often been said that knowledge is power and I hope that by presenting these images to the widest possible readership, I can play my part in helping to protect and preserve these unique natural wonders. As Keats wrote: “A thing of beauty is a joy forever”. This work has already become the object of great interest and I believe it would be an invaluable addition to any book collection or library.
    The price I am selling the book to you is £29.99 and the retail price is for you to decide. If you check the website you will find its non profitable as the money are invested back on a new project for the protection of the endemic and endangered species of birds of the world.
    Please feel free to get in touch if you have any queries and I will do my very best to help in anyway I can. I would be grateful for an early reply thanking you so much.
    My best wishes at all times
    Yours truly,
    N.Ramen.
