Researchers warn that the loss of shared knowledge between animals could threaten their survival. The absence of North Atlantic right whales from many of their ancestral feeding grounds is suggested to be due to the loss of cultural knowledge – a result of whaling and subsequent population declines. It is argued that understanding this cultural knowledge may be key to the success of conservation efforts.

New habitats for wild bees will be created at six reservoirs in the Yorkshire Dales. The network of pollinator habitats, created by the Bee Together project, will form part of a ‘B-Line’ from Leeds to Lancaster, aiming to reverse the current decline in bee populations.
