Summer 2014

The busy and often ‘virtual’ lives so many of us lead these days may dislodge us from our sense of the physical landscape in which we live, but summer holidays provide opportunities to walk coastal paths looking at ancient imprints on the landscape, to catch gobies in rock pools or to visit an open-air theatre.

Spring 2014

Water is so vital to life and there's usually no shortage in Wales. Modern ecologists and archivists are managers of valuable long term monitoring of both recent and historic data: climate change, extremes of weather, hydropower, and saving endangered species such as freshwater pearl mussels and pine martens.

The cuckoo heralding Spring, the swift screaming its summer joy, the uplands echoing to the call of golden plover and Greenland white-fronted geese returning to winter in the Dyfi estuary: these are all species in trouble. Articles in this edition look at efforts to understand the causes of decline, so that action can be taken to restore populations to health.

Autumn 2013

When the State of Nature report was launched in Cardiff in May 2013, with separate reports for the four countries of the UK, the picture it painted was one of nature in retreat. Yet our environment would be a whole lot worse without the efforts of a huge range of individuals and organisations intent on its management in an intelligent, genuinely sustainable way. Read about the essential work needed to make the return of the beaver a reality, for example; and initiatives designed to brighten the dismal prospects of pollinating insects.

Summer 2013

As holiday-makers head for the beautiful beaches of Wales, we take a look at some of the issues surrounding the marine environment. While governments and decision-makers are grindingly slow to secure protected areas, others take a more active approach with conscientious, long term monitoring, or involving the public in 'citizen science' projects. Inland there is much hard work restoring meadows and blanket bog, which can only be good news for endangered honeybees, though sites like Crug-y-Byddar are in danger because of a policy loophole.
