The natural world has been creating light for over 400 million years through chemical reactions. In the ocean, more than 90% of species use bioluminescence to light up their lives, however, did you know bioluminescence has evolved in some land species too. Fireflies, fungi and even snails use light to survive. The amazing skills these species possess can even aid in medical research!

Badgers are undoubtedly one of the most iconic animals in the UK. However, in recent years they’ve had turbulent tribulations for their connections to the spread of TB to cattle, but now a new ZSL report has made a ground-breaking discovery, reinforcing the science behind why culling doesn’t work, and outlines what new steps we need to take to manage Bovine TB.
