  • Wildlife Trusts and Reintroductions

    Dr Catherine McNicol reveals some of the work that Wildlife Trusts are doing to bring species back from the brink. Restoring ecosystems Complex ecosystems are healthy ecosystems.

These simplified ecosystems become less able to endure extreme events, such as droughts and […]

Our lakes, rivers, reservoirs and coasts are a winter home for an estimated 2.1 million […]

    Concern for the environment is at a record high. Over a quarter of Britons now cite it as one of the top three issues facing the country.
