Wildfire smoke is both inevitable and largely unpredictable. We need to change our activities and behaviours to limit exposure to wildfire smoke and protect health.
Eating bird food was also linked to a nearly four-fold increase in their breeding densities.
By studying where rewilding has worked well around the world, we’ve worked out the dos and don'ts.
Timber company VicForests won its appeal last week and logging is set to resume. Let’s take a look at the dramatic implications for wildlife and the law.
Nigeria must improve biodiversity awareness among its citizens to stem animal poaching and halt biodiversity loss.
When something is free, people use a lot of it. Economists are urging governments to compute values for natural resources – wildlife, plants, air, water – to create motives for protecting them.
