Conservation, De-Extinction and the Precarious Future of Wild Things
by M.R. O'Connor
In a world dominated by human interference and rapid climate change, species large and small are increasingly vulnerable to extinction. In Resurrection Science, journalist M.R. O’Connor explores the extreme measures that scientists are taking to try and save them, from captive breeding and translocating genetically rare individuals to frozen zoos and de-extinction. Each chapter in this beautifully written book focuses on a unique species and the people entwined in its fate.
Greatest Sporting Moustaches
presented by Movember
There’s no denying it: nothing says ‘sport superstar’ like a great, filthy moustache. We may not know why this connection exists – perhaps it’s the testosterone, the aerodynamics or just the plain old swagger of a bit of face fur – but legends of sport from across history and the globe have proven it time and again.
In honour of this grand tradition, and in partnership with the Movember Foundation, comes this hilarious (or perhaps inspiring!) photographic celebration of the greatest moustaches ever to grace the world sporting stage: from Merv Hughes to Mitchell Johnson and Hulk Hogan to Manny Pacquiao.
