  • Having a whale of a time

    Science has followed many large mammals recently, in efforts to conserve and understand their habitats and their lives. Now, new modes of migration in humpbacks open up a can of krill for yet more investigations.
  • Devil rays surviving in the Mediterranean.

    Wed 7:20am
    How often do we get to see a great ray in its natural habitat, especially in Europe. Here, you could visit an Italian nature reserve and get to know animals that compare with the giant mantas (almost.)
  • Bleaching: a coral health and recovery guide

    Tue 11:22am
    How will we help the reefs to remain viable, as global warming overcomes so many of the regions in which reefs form important ecosystems?
  • Choose shrew-like creatures as more sociable ancestors!

    Mon 4:22am
    It isn’t just about apes. The whole study of animal society has been based on dogs, cattle and others such as our close relatives. Social behaviour undoubtedly began in another mammal group, even if it then became extinct. Investigating such behavioural…
  • Global warming figures are becoming even worse

    May 8, 2015, 9:40 am
    What are we going to do about energy production, while the Paris Summit on carbon emissions looms in December? While we twiddle our thumbs, global warming is worsening at a faster and faster pace. Each individual on earth needs to act like his personal…
  • Rainforest fragments and species that need them!

    May 4, 2015, 7:09 am
    The future is talked about, the climate is changing, but when will we finally stop the rot. Forests are essential but from Japanese furniture to cardboard and toilet paper, they are still being used illogically and incomprehensibly by people who all know…
  • Philippine eagle helped by Whitley Award

    May 1, 2015, 4:42 am
    Conservation is not only about the big animals. The plants, their consumers and the rest of an ecosystem may not catch headlines, but involving them and indigenous populations is crucial to our last ditch efforts to keep these organisms alive in their habitat.
  • Rare Rainforest Trees assume Great Importance.

    Apr 29, 2015, 4:39 am
    Great research requires a similar amount of attention, as we concentrate on climate change and global warming. One of our most significant assets is the Amazonian forests that absorb more of our carbon dioxide than any other sink. Here is a possible link to…
  • Jumby hawksbills enjoy their beach

    Apr 27, 2015, 4:14 am
    While plastic and chemicals destroys turtles at sea, the nesting sites are receiving much more care now to ensure the rarest species can still slowly reproduce. There are officially none more cared-for than Jumby Bay on an island off Antigua. The private…
  • Best office in the world, or just the greenest?

    Sat 5:21am
    When they look back at us, will they laugh, or just point at achievements that led to a future of eco-living, wildlife management that works and fossils that belong only in museums.
  • Bees' immunity as they evolved.

    Apr 24, 2015, 5:29 am
    Neonicotinoids have devastated the bee populations on all continents, but one way to fight this insidious neuronal and behavioural attack on our major pollinators is to investigate their most intimate genetic secrets and help them by understanding how they…
  • The wolf and the---domesticated wolf.

    Apr 22, 2015, 8:20 am
    Which one will bite you? The parent of Romulus and Remus or that next-door mut that is always chained up?
  • Hybrid energy: bacteria+solar harvesting!

    Apr 21, 2015, 5:14 am
    How soon will real solar harvesting take place on a truly large scale, that will make our use of fossil fuels truly obsolete? That question still needs a really astute answer, but the time is rapidly approaching, even if this new hybrid photosynthesis fails…
  • Cuban crocodile gets a lift !

    Apr 20, 2015, 4:22 am
    The need to get pure bred animals back into the wild as well as create a genetic diversity from all available stock is emphasised in this exercise. Swedish crocs are being sent to their Cuban origins to help increase both survival and genetic stock.
  • Weapons important for stag beetle evolution.

    Apr 16, 2015, 4:56 am
    The most intriguing species are often those that have adopted unusual shape and size as means to their special species’ needs. Stag beetles now appear to stand out as one of the most remarkable and numerous speciations from a basic model of battling males.…
