The Osprey is the magazine of Nature Newfoundland and Labrador (formerly the Newfoundland and Labrador Natural History Society).
The Osprey has been published by the society for over 3 decades; it provides a forum for discussion of environmental issues and is a source of information and original research material focusing on various aspects of the province’s natural history such as birds, plants, insects, mammals, general ecology and philosophical nature musings. Manuscripts can be submitted by anyone who is knowledgeable about the province’s natural history, such as university faculty, students, professional field biologists, amateur naturalists, nature writers and nature observers.
Archived issues can be found here through the MUN Library. If you like archived issues of the Osprey, become a member to check our new content!
