TESSA BOASE His­to­rian Tessa has re­searched the for­got­ten fe­male founders of the RSPB. “It started as a women’s cam­paign against feath­ered hats,” she says. “They built the so­ci­ety with as­ton­ish­ing speed – then the men took over.” See p26 JO PRICE Deputy ed­i­tor Jo saw the world’s rarest kiwi on her hon­ey­moon in New Zealand. “The coun­try has an am­bi­tious plan to save this im­por­tant na­tional icon from the brink of ex­tinc­tion, and it’s work­ing,” she says. See p32 LOUISE TICKLE Wildlife jour­nal­ist Louise went swim­ming in the Arc­tic Cir­cle in search of sea ea­gles. “It was worth plung­ing into icy wa­ter twice a day to see ma­rine wildlife in its own en­vi­ron­ment – I think!” she says. See p66 PIOTR NASRECKI Entomologi­st Piotr trav­elled to Costa Rica to pho­to­graph in­sects. “They're beau­ti­ful and eco­log­i­cally im­por­tant or­gan­isms,” he says. “Yet we of­ten fail to ap­pre­ci­ate them be­cause of their small size.” See p76
