Following a short, creative hiatus, we’re stoked to bring you the latest edition of New Nature Magazine. This time boasting a new look and an even more jam-packed format [50 pages, no less].
The decision to move to a bi-monthly release schedule was not an easy one but, with a corresponding increase in time, we believe it has been worthwhile. With ample time now to prepare an eye-catching publication, and to feature the work of an increased number of young environmentalists. To this end, we hope you enjoy our latest issue!
The sweet song of summer is gradually drawing to an end and the coming autumn begins to take hold. The months of September and October see a change not only in the weather for our wildlife, but the species that can be found here. Migrants such as swallows gather to wave goodbye to our land and fly to warmer climes for the winter, while flocks of noisy geese join us in abundance. It also marks a period of change for
New Nature magazine with the publication of our very first bi-monthly issue! It is crammed full with advice for the season, as Elliot Dowding tells us what to watch for this month (p8), and we revel in excitement for the coming deer rut thanks to our glorious cover image taken by Oscar Dewhurst. You can delve into this species on p12 where Scott Thomson tells us all about this impressive mammal.
This time of year provides a chance for summer reflections as Sophie May Lewis takes us on a journey through the South Downs (p18) and I recall the glory of a coastal walk in late summer (p14). We continue to focus on conservation projects, including schemes to reduce bycatch (p32), and why nature is so important for our own health (p36). We also hear from Professor Adam Hart, the lead author of an interesting research article recently published in the British Ecological Society’s journal Methods in Ecology and Evolution.
From the gorgeous greens of summer to the drifting russet leaves of autumn, we hope this first bi-monthly issue makes you want to revel in the season. As always we are grateful for everyone’s support for New Nature, and if you want to write about wonderful wildlife, have a conservation concern, or are involved with a thriving nature project then we would love to hear from you.
