The Eden Project: Not just a Garden

During our UK roadtrip we were able to make a stop at the Eden Project, somewhere I've wanted to visit for a long time. As well as being a very large set of greenhouses, the Eden Project offers social and environmental benefits, opportunities for outreach and a platform for science. While we're all in lockdown, I'll take you on a trip through the Eden Project.

Elephant Conservation: Elephant Valley Thailand

As many of you know from my holiday snaps, I was lucky enough to have a much needed break from my studies to Thailand for a few weeks in October. We did many amazing things whilst we were there, but our visit to Elephant Valley Thailand (EVT) in Chiang Rai, Northern Thailand, was a dream come true. Prior to our visit, I contacted EVT to ask if they would mind me writing a blog about their work, and they gave us a discount for our visit in return, so I want to emphasise that before writing.
