St. John’s, Antigua
Joseph (Junior) Prosper is a schoolteacher and dedicated local conservationist, and one of the best birders on the island of Antigua. His interest in birding started in 2002 after attending a West Indian Whistling-Duck (WIWD) and Wetlands Education Training led in collaboration with BirdsCaribbean. After that he was hooked, and Junior has since spent years documenting the status and distribution of the WIWD on Antigua. He has also worked with BirdsCaribbean and Environmental Awareness Group on various conservation projects and co-authored BirdLife International’s Important Bird Areas of Antigua & Barbuda.
