  • The Planet of the Insects

    28 August 2014, 10:15 am

  • Conservation is too conservative in the UK

    27 August 2014, 2:08 am

    The white-tailed eagle, the dormouse and the large blue butterfly are all threatened. But not by extinction. The threat comes from ill-equipped government who are going to cling to a list of alien plants and animals that is so far out-of-date, Darwin would…
  • Watch the whale population in Norway!

    26 August 2014, 4:32 am

    25 August 2014, 5:09 am

  • Vaccines for badgers (against bTB)

    22 August 2014, 6:39 am

    The first attempt at large scale vaccination of badgers in the UK could finally lay to rest the hoary old argument about whether cattle are often infected with bTB by this particular animal. Then again, it could simply spread the discussion to other countries…
  • Old crocs never die, except when it's cold

    20 August 2014, 4:02 am

  • Dream animal lives - as a fossil

    18 August 2014, 2:14 am

  • Trees lose out to climate change

    15 August 2014, 6:01 am

    There aren't many large forest animals in Europe, but the lack of forest is the main reason for that. Is it possible that more forest losses will take place because of the great storms cause d by climate change, the wildfires caused by global warming or the…

    14 August 2014, 8:19 am

    How long can we allow shark-fin soup to decimate and make extinct the top predators of our oceans? The shark is not just one fish. The range of shapes and sizes is vast in these ancient cartilaginous fish. We need that diversity and presence in the ecosystem.…
