RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch 2015

Thu 22nd January 2015 (0 comments)



Every year more than half a million people spend time during one weekend in January taking part in one of the largest wildlife surveys in the world. Organised by the RSPB, the Big Garden Birdwatch has been going for more than 30 years and aims to provide an accurate understanding of how birds are habiting different parts of the UK.

As of December 5th 2013, Britain is known to be home to 596 species of bird including both native species and migrant visitors that come to the country for only a small amount of time every year (sometimes just on a short stopover on their route to and from warmer climates in the south).

In The News: Blind Orangutan Returns To Wild After Ground-Breaking Operation

Thu 15th January 2015 (0 comments)



In the modern era, environmental news is high on the agenda for most organisations who report anything and everything from localised shrinking bee colonies to global climate change that affects almost everyone in the world. With so many different stories spanning the front pages and being in the headlines, we have collected a few of our top environmental and animal news stories from the week.

A blind orangutan has been released into the wild after a ground-breaking operation to restore her sight. Named Gober the rescued female was released into the forests of North Sumatra with her four year old twins. Sadly however, the male twin was abandoned with his mother on the first day and despite efforts by the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP) to help him adapt to the wild, he was eventually taken back to the rescue centre where he can be cared for. To learn more about Gober and her story please click here.

Tue 13th January 2015 (0 comments)



There are millions of plant species found all around the world that provide our planet with oxygen and food for numerous animal species. Plants can be found in almost all habitable regions from the ones that make up the nutrient rich jungles in the tropics, to microscopic algae found in the cold depths of the seas.

In The News: Young Shar Pei Dog Abandoned At Scottish Station

Thu 8th January 2015 (0 comments)



In the modern era, environmental news is high on the agenda for most organisations who report anything and everything from localised shrinking bee colonies to global climate change that affects almost everyone in the world. With so many different stories spanning the front pages and being in the headlines, we have collected a few of our top environmental and animal news stories from the week.

A young Shar Pei named Kai was found leashed to a rail at Ayr station yesterday, with a small suitcase containing his belongings. A Scottish animal shelter is currently caring for the abandoned dog and trying to track down his owner, who if found will be charged under Scotland's Animal Health and Welfare Act for acting so cruelly. Thought to be between two and three years old, Kai will be cared for by the SPCA until they are able to find him a permanent home. They are urging anyone who may know the dog's owner to get in touch as they are obviously keen to identify the person responsible. To learn more about this sad story, please click here.
