Located just outside our home city of Winchester, Marwell is a champion of wildlife conservation and their aim this summer is to highlight the work being done by the charity to protect the endangered Grevy’s zebra in the wild.

One could say it has been a whirlwind year for those who follow the Southern Resident Killer Whales. Starting from the tail end of a difficult 2014, and through to the early months of 2016, there was a near record number of births in this population, bringing reserved hope and optimism to the scientific community and everyone else who is enamored with these three families.
The boom started with the December birth of J50, or ‘Scarlet’ in 2014. She was followed closely by J51 ‘Nova’, L121 ‘Windsong’, and J52 ‘Sonic’; as well as J53, L123, J54 and J55 who are not yet named. These young whales receive a ceremonial welcome,… Read on

Floe Edge has to be one of the most remote places I have ever stayed. Five and a half hours’ flight north of Ottawa, followed by an overnight stay and then a three and a half hour skidoo journey to the camp, set centrally in a cavernous 25 kilometre-wide ocean inlet atop three metres of ice is no simple journey!
And the camp itself is on the edge of existence - it clings on for a mere three weeks of the year before the 24 hours of warming daylight almost miraculously breaks up the sheet ice and makes it impossible for the camp and its temporary inhabitants to stay.
The overnight stop is in Pond… Read on

Arrangements are already well under way for our 25th anniversary Festival of Wildlife in Borneo next year, and I recently made a visit to the Danum Valley to check the logistics for this unique tour.
An hour’s flight from Kota Kinabalu got me to Lahad Datu, a growing town of 250,00 inhabitants, with a remarkable 45 ethnic groups. Having met our local team, I headed by 4x4 to Borneo Rainforest Lodge with my guide for the next few days, Calixtus, who has worked as a senior guide at the… Read on
