BBC Wildlife is a British glossy, all-colour, monthly magazine about wildlife, operated by BBC Magazines and published by Immediate Media Company.


BBC Wildlife was launched in January 1963 as Animals Magazine, edited by filmmaker Armand Denis. In 1974 the magazine was renamed Wildlife, and in November 1983 the magazine joined BBC Magazines as BBC Wildlife.

From 1981, it was edited for 23 years by Rosamund Kidman Cox. In May 2004, BBC Wildlife moved to Origin Publishing and current editor Sophie Stafford took over, after two years working on the title as a section editor.

Editions are now numbered such that the January 2005 edition was volume 23, number 1.
