Some Trumpland observers are convinced that he is in serious legal trouble as New York’s AG investigation of Trump Organization’s finances intensifies
How should one feel about the first year of the Biden presidency?. I can’t really say I’m disappointed, since I didn’t have high hopes going into it. But I do feel dread. This last year has felt a bit like being trapped in a nail-biting intermission between two horror films. The opening instalment consisted of Donald Trump’s first four years in office – it ended with the cliffhanger of a deadly plague and a surreal, poorly executed, but still terrifying ransacking of the Capitol. The sequel practically writes itself, as the man ascends to power a second time, even more emboldened and determined to hold on to power.

Toxic substances known as “forever chemicals” have been detected in otters in England and Wales, according to new research. Scientists said most of these contaminants, which pose a health risk to both humans and animals, were due to wastewater treatment or agricultural waste. They said the findings suggested “widespread pollution” of freshwaters across the UK. It comes just days after a report by MPs said England’s rivers were “in a mess”, with many containing a “chemical cocktail” of pollution of sewage, agricultural waste and single-use plastic. The Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) warned this could harm both swimmers and wildlife.The new...

How many bones do penguins have? – Sawyer, age 7, Media, Pennsylvania As a zoo and wildlife veterinarian, I sometimes take care of penguins – both in the wild and in aquariums and zoos. I’m always fascinated when I have to take X-rays of an injured bird that might have a broken bone, is sick or having difficulty moving.

How this little marsupial's poo nurtures urban gardens and bushland (and how you can help protect them)
Wildlife encounters can be few and far between in cities but, if you’re lucky, you might catch sight of a small Aussie marsupial in Perth that’s helping keep urban bushland healthy. Quenda, a rabbit-sized digging mammal native to southwestern Australia, are found in patches of bushland, parkland and even backyard gardens. And our latest research shows just how important these unassuming marsupials are to Australian ecosystems. We found quenda eat a huge variety of specialised fungi called mycorrhiza, which play a key role in helping native vegetation, including eucalyptus trees, absorb water and nutrients. The fungal spores survive in quenda droppings,...
Pupping season for grey seals on a beach in Norfolk has seen births go from less than 100 to around 2,500 in 20 years.This year’s count was called off due to high tides which forced the animals on top of the dunes at Horsey Gap making it too dangerous for volunteers to carry out their usual count.But Peter Ansell, chairman of Friends of Horsey Seals, said he would make an “educated guess” that a minimum of 2,500 grey seal pups had been born since November.He said there has been a 10% increase each year, and told the PA news agency:...
