G7 'legacy' project launched to protect and restore nature across Cornwall

The UK government has pledged an initial £700,000 for a nature recovery project in Cornwall as a "legacy" of this week's G7 summit.

The funding, secured by Cornwall Council, Natural England and Cornwall Wildlife Trust and others, will be used to "knit together" precious habitats as part of an England-wide Nature Recovery Network.

Bees Go Quackers!!


Scientists using highly sensitive vibration detectors have decoded honeybee queens' "tooting and quacking" duets in the hive.

Worker bees make new queens by sealing eggs inside special cells with wax and feeding them royal jelly.
