The UK govern­ment has thrown its weight be­hind the cre­ation of the world’s big­gest en­vi­ron­men­tal sanc­tu­ary, cover­ing a huge swathe of the Antarc­tic ocean. The re­serve – which is five times the size of Ger­many – would ban all fish­ing in an area of the Wed­dell Sea, safe­guard­ing species such as Em­peror pen­guins and blue whales.

Dogs and cats that start nag­ging for their din­ner at the same time each evening are not just hun­gry – they ac­tu­ally know if their meal is be­ing dished up late.

That’s the find­ings from new re­search that re­veals pets can tell what time it is!
