Niki Rust is an en­vi­ron­men­tal sci­en­tist and writer. “Cli­mate change will be the num­ber one threat to wildlife in the fu­ture. The work that Will Reid is do­ing to un­der­stand how this will af­fect wildlife is cru­cial.” See p55


Fas­ci­nated by the his­tory and nat­u­ral his­tory of burial grounds, Ste­fan says, “They are pos­si­bly our most un­der­ap­pre­ci­ated wildlife sanc­tu­ar­ies and their care and con­ser­va­tion is supremely im­por­tant.” See p42


Ecol­o­gist Alex works with a range of pro­tected species, in­clud­ing bats. “To many of us, bats are mys­te­ri­ous,” she says. “They so of­ten dwell in the shad­ows right be­side us, and yet re­main so enig­matic.” See p60


Sec­tion ed­i­tor Sarah spent a week on the North­ern Colom­bia Bird­ing Trail, and saw more than 200 species. “The coun­try could be­come one of the great­est eco-tourism des­ti­na­tions in the world,” she says. See p32
