Nadeem Perera is a wildlife TV presenter, author, activist and co-founder of the birdwatching collective, Flock Together.

As a passionate Youth Sport Coach, he continues to support schools and young people in his community in North East London.
Nadeem has always used writing as a way to make sense of the world around him. In 2022, his co-authored book Outsiders (Octopus Publishing) was published. Part memoir, part manifesto, Outsiders is a call-to-action for us all to reconnect to our natural environment.
