Manta: Interview with Guy Stevens
Marine biologist and co-founder of the Manta Trust, Guy Stevens has spent many years researching mantas in an effort to understand their lives and to promote conservation practices that will ensure their continued survival.
In Manta he has joined forces with National Geographic photographer Thomas Peschak to create a visually stunning and informative tribute to these animals.

To coincide with the re-release of the book, we spoke to Guy about his work with Mantas and the conservation challenges that they face.
Call to action for rare Welsh spiders
A review by Natural Resources Wales has highlighted the importance and rarity of many of Wales’ spiders. 18 species were found to be critically endangered, including the sand running spider, the cave dwelling spider and the fen raft spider.

Research conducted by the University of Southampton has shown that plants within peatbog communities which disappear due to climate change are rapidly replaced by other species fulfilling the same biological role.

Neonicotinoids found in honey around the world
A recent study looking at the prevalence of neonicotinoid pesticides in honey from around the world has found traces in the majority of samples tested. This has led to increased concerns about how widely honeybees are exposed to the pesticide.
