Golden Grenades

Episode 29: Arjan Dwarshuis

This episode of Golden Grenades features Arjan Dwarshuis, a professional bird guide, writer, and motivational speaker, who also holds the current Guinness Book World Record for observing the largest number of bird species in a single year. In 2016, he launched his global “Big Year” and ultimately observed 6852 of the world’s roughly 10,900 bird species, setting a record that stands to this day. His yearlong adventure raised nearly 50,000 Euros for the BirdLife’s Preventing Extinctions Programme. Arjan also starred in the award-winning documentary Arjan’s Big Year, and appears regularly on radio, television, and podcast programs in the Netherlands and beyond. On May 4th 2023, his book about this adventure will be published in English by Chelsea Green Publishing under the title ‘The (Big) Year That Flew By’.
