The people behind our stories
Wildlife artist and photographer Robert is fascinated by the dramatic lives of his local stoats. “I watched in horror as two kits locked together in combat and tumbled into the pond as a writhing ball,” he says. See p16.
Kate’s method of saving the world is collecting data on wildlife. “We all think about the impact of our work, so it’s important to me to consider whether monitoring actually helps to save wildlife,” she says. See p26.
Journalist Linda is fascinated by the feistiness of little penguins. “They are no taller than wine bottles,” she says. “But after dark they trumpet out their songs so loudly, it sounds as if they are using megaphones.” See p30.
Nature writer Mike was exhausted by his first encounter with sifakas. “Only once I’d slogged through Madagascar’s rainforest myself could I fully appreciate the grace of these captivating animals,” he says. See p38.
