Pho­tog­ra­pher Lau­rie has spent decades study­ing his local bad­gers. “It amazes me how an an­i­mal as large as a bad­ger is rarely seen by most peo­ple,” he says. “But then, that is why I wanted to be a na­ture pho­tog­ra­pher.” See p18 “I’ve al­ways been sad­dened by the story of the sud­den ex­tinc­tion of the che­quered skip­per in Eng­land,” says Pa­trick. “It’s thrilling to think this dy­namic lit­tle but­ter­fly is buzzing around for­est rides again.” See p62 Ecol­o­gist Ly­dia stud­ies lemurs in Mada­gas­car. “There are 111 lemur species across five fam­i­lies,” she says. “De­for­esta­tion, log­ging and pet and bush­meat trades threaten al­most ev­ery species.” See p103 Writer Amy-Jane in­ter­views John Hunt for our new vol­un­teer­ing col­umn. “Vol­un­teer­ing has never been more var­ied,” she says. “Al­most ev­ery as­pect of wildlife con­ser­va­tion is done sim­ply for the love of na­ture.” See p107
