This week we talk about pine martens and their love of peanut butter, an eagle which may or many not have ever existed, the reintroduction of the white tailed sea eagle to the UK and the recent shark fin trade ban which has been put into place in Florida. The unifying theme of this mish mash of topics is that humans are involved in every aspect of the natural world. If our behaviours become unsustainable and exploitative, this can have catastrophic consequences for species and ecosystems. However, nature has shown time and time again that if given the chance, it can bounce back and recover. We need to give nature that chance before we get to tipping points past which we can no longer reverse the damage we have caused.
