Saving Species in May

Items due to be featured in Saving Species during May include the next installment of the Purple Emperor story (how many are going to survive through to adulthood?), news of several reintroduction projects (cranes, field crickets, ladybird spiders and more) and the curious case of the Thatch Moss (Leptodontium gemmascens).

And from overseas we will be finding out more about the oil spill in the Mississippi Delta, plus Black Bears in Minnesota and wildlife in Costa Rica.
