Coral Reef Conservation

Posted on February 9th, 2019 by Agent Littlejohns

The ocean is the largest ecosystem on earth and as such, it’s effectively earth’s life support system. It absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reduces the impact of climate change, so the diversity and productivity of our oceans is crucial for human survival. But as we know, they’re in need …

Deforestation – it’s effect on climate change and animal species – was the theme of this weeks’ workshop.

Posted on November 30th, 2018 by Agent Littlejohns

As the days grow colder and we’re waking up to early morning mist, it’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas. As such a workshop on endangered animals that inhabit colder climates, such as emperor penguins and polar bears, seemed pretty apt. Plus, the Dynasties episode on penguins that was …
