Venetians fear city becoming a ‘museum’ as population falls to 50,000
Campaigners say Italian city’s remaining residents feel ‘suffocated’ by effects of tourismThe remaining inhabitants of Venice’s historic centre said they fear becoming like “relics in an open museum” now that the population is expected to drop below 50,000 for the first time.Once the heart of a powerful maritime republic, Venice’s main island has lost more than 120,000 residents since the early 1950s, driven away by myriad issues but mainly a focus on mass tourism that has caused the population to be dwarfed by the thousands of visitors who crowd its squares, bridges and narrow walkways each day.

From 300,000 rabbits to none: a Southern Ocean island is reborn
Invasive species on islands: Macquarie Island, a Unesco world heritage site, was being eaten alive until an ambitious eradication programme restored itDriving out invasive species on islands has high success rate and big benefits – studyOn a world map, Macquarie Island is a speck in the Southern Ocean, but for ecologists it is a beacon, illuminating a future for grand-scale environmental recovery projects.Melissa Houghton first set foot on the 34km-long green streak as a dog handler in late 2011. Rabbits, cats, rats and mice had been introduced by sealers in the 1800s and were wreaking havoc on the world heritage site. At their peak, there were approximately 300,000 European rabbits and an untold number of black rats and house mice. Continue reading...

New research finds that eradicating non-native rats, cats, rabbits and goats is 88% effective in restoring biodiversityEradicating rats, goats and other invasive animals from islands is one of the most effective tools for protecting wildlife, resulting in dramatic transformations to degraded archipelagos and atolls, according to a new study.From the dodo to Daudin’s giant tortoise, island species have been disproportionately affected by extinctions, often caused by the arrival of alien species brought by colonisers that killed wildlife found nowhere else on Earth.

False Start review – sprinter’s nightmare makes for pacy theatre
Summerhall, EdinburghThe pressures faced by elite athletes are explored in a dynamic show presented as part of the fringe’s Belgian SelectionA gun is fired and the agonised figure before us reels to the ground while three adversaries look on in cool detachment. It’s a scene not from a western but the athletics track. This physical theatre production turns the sprinter’s dreaded false start into a psychological horror show, as four performers square off against each other. A hypnotic choreography is created from stretching, tuck jumps and other warmups, precise foot strikes and sporting bravado, with the athletes raising their arms and bidding us to rally them.Ingrid von Wantoch Rekowski’s production, part of the fringe’s Belgian Selection, opens by turning the block start into a ritual, as Ninon Pérez’s hands form a bridge with her fingertips caressing the floor while the ball of her foot pivots behind. This ensemble often moves in unison but any notion of togetherness is disrupted by their total containment; you sense each competitor’s isolation even when they touch. Staged at close quarters in Summerhall, it has an immediacy impossible in a sporting stadium: shoes squeak, breath quickens, eyes burn with concentration. Continue reading...
