Entries in environment (24)
We've got two weeks of Science club articles this week, all here in one place for your viewing pleasure. Did you know baboons can be as picky as humans? We've also got the craziest research from 2012! And we look at the possibility of genetically modified mosquitoes combatting diseases.
Get your weekly science fix and catch up with our Science Club, lovingly maintained by our fantastic team of scientists in Frontier's Research & Development department. So what's been going on...?
In this feature, we talk to past volunteers, interns and staff about there experiences with Frontier, and find out exactly what they're doing with themselves now. Today we catch up with ex-Frontier London HQ intern Sophie Meyjes who's been involved in some really exciting work since her time at Frontier.
In this brand new feature, we'll be bringing you a monthly roundup of what's been happening on Frontier projects; from what’s been caught by Cambodia’s camera traps to an absence of ‘sweetlips’ in Tanzania, find out what’s happening on some of Frontier’s main conservation projects around the World. For regular updates on project news makes sure you check out the Project News tab on The Society for Environmental Exploration (SEE) website.
Money matters. It is the language in which business and politics speaks. Indeed, the most pervasive question in our democracy, particularly in these economically treacherous times, is ‘How much will it cost?’
Hermione is the creator of an innovative and new age fundraising site called DoNation, which enables people to sponsor their friend’s challenges through green and sustainable action instead of pledging money - in order to help the environment.
Today we speak to future volunteer Leah McGregor who later this year will be heading off to Frontier’s Cambodia Island Snorkeling, Beaches and Conservation project. We asked Leah a few questions about her upcoming trip, finding out what she’s excited about, what she’s going to pack and a few other bits and pieces.
2011 was a historic year when it comes to the environment. Natural disasters ruled the headlines causing havoc and resulting in the disruption of homes and economies across the globe. However, as Gemma Percy describes in this interesting article, it was not all doom and gloom in 2011 - the year we stood up for Mother Earth.
As we come to the end of the year, we come to a time dedicated to merriment and celebration. It’s now then that we take the time to celebrate our Research and Development Interns and the work they do for Into the Wild every week on Science Club. Here are our top picks from the year.
The research carried out by Frontier is frequently used in scientific studies. Today we speak to Neil Burgess, Programme Coordinator of the ‘Valuing the Arc’ project, which aims to attach a financial value to the ecosystem of the Eastern Arc Mountains in Tanzania, relying on data collected by Frontier since we started working there in 1989.
