When Madeleine Goumas published a paper on keeping the birds at bay, it sparked a media frenzy. And some people were keen to share their own storiesHow often it falls to science in these darkened days to bring a much-needed glint of hope. And so to this summer’s case in point.

A wheel education: the environmental diploma you earn by bike
As Bogotá expands, pressure is increasing to build on ecological zones. Can the city’s large cycling community help push back? All photographs by Dimitri Selibas“Viva life, viva the bicycle!” The chant fills the streets as around 150 participants on a 10-week bicycle-based environmental course cycle through Ciudad Bolivar, one of Bogotá’s most dangerous neighbourhoods. With ages ranged from seven to 75, and accompanied by a police escort, they are headed to Cerro Seco (or Dry Mountain), a nature reserve in the city’s hilly southern outskirts.As this city of 8 million residents continues to expand, the pressure increases to transform ecological zones into what some argue are short-sighted building projects. Campaigners say Cerro Seco is under threat from three powerful developers vying to build 14,000 houses. Continue reading...
