For the last 25 years Tony has spent his time seeking change toward a more sustainable society at local, national and international levels; from providing ecology and conservation experiences for primary school children, to making the case for new recycling laws, to orchestrating international campaigns for action on rainforests and climate change.

In 1990 Juniper joined Friends of the Earth. He has since maintained a strong public presence both for Friends of the Earth and personally, in the UK and abroad. In 2005 Country Life named him number 25 out of the top 100 most influential figures shaping the countryside.

In 1998 he became Policy and Campaigns Director of Friends of the Earth. From 2003 to 2008 he was the organization’s UK director. From 2001 to 2008 he was also elected Vice Chair of the 70-strong network of national organizations that comprise Friends of the Earth International.  He contributed to many of Friends of the Earth’s most important achievements including legislation enacted to protect wildlife habitats, recycling laws, legal controls on carbon dioxide emissions, and policy changes in the transport and farming sectors.

During his tenure as director the national organization of Friends of the Earth was the highest profile environmental group in the UK. The organization’s annual income increased to nearly £11 million and professional staff increased to over 160. At the same time Friends of the Earth International increased its profile and income, recruited many new member countries and for the first time adopted a comprehensive strategy.

Tony Juniper previously worked as a professional ornithologist, and from 1989-1990 spearheaded a program with Birdlife International to prevent the extinction of critically endangered parrots. He became a recognized expert on this group and in 1998 co-published Parrots: A Guide To The Parrots Of The World, which was judged ‘reference book of the year’ by the UK Library Association In 1999.

Other titles by Tony Juniper include the companion volume to the BBC series Saving Planet Earth (2007), How Many Lightbulbs Does It Take To Change A Planet? (2007) and Spix’s Macaw: The Race To Save The World’s Rarest Bird (2002). He is a prolific writer and regularly contributes to The Guardian and Resurgence magazine and blogs on Comment is Free at the Guardian website. Tony has also written a book entitled 'Harmony' with the Prince of Wales and Ian Skelly (released in 2010). Due to his talents, direct experience, and knowledge, Tony is a regular contributor on radio and TV and is in great demand as a keynote speaker. 

Tony Juniper now works as a special advisor to the Prince of Wales’s Rainforest Project and the Cambridge University Program for Industry, where he is a Senior Associate. He has worked on advisory panels for the British Council, the Ecologist and BBC Wildlife magazines and when the National Geographic launched their new Green Magasine Supplement in 2009, they appointed Tony as the Editor-in-Chief.

Tony’s latest book, What Nature does for Britain, will be published to coincide with the anniversary of the 2013 floods on the Somerset Levels – it includes data and evidence as yet unseen to make the case for getting environmental issues firmly back on the agenda.
