    Funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, ResponSEAble’s aim is to encourage Europeans to get more interested in their oceans and improve their understanding of the complex human-ocean relationship. The project has developed the ocean literary tools for different audiences including Educators, Citizens, Policy Makers, Professionals and Scientists. The tools consist of videos, a learning game, a series of weminars and a Key Stories section which provides clear examples around six issues: Eutrophication and agriculture, Ballast water and invasive alien species, Sustainable fisheries and aquaculture, Microplastics and Cosmetics, Costal Tourism and Marine Renewable Energy.

    Funded chiefly by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, SAPS creates opportunities for teachers and students to find out more about plants and to become more interested in plant science. The How To videos are designed to help teachers and technicians carry out a range of interesting new biology practical experiments with secondary and post-16 students. The videos are intended as quick guides through the necessary practical steps and also suggest how this can be used in the classroom. The Library offers access to a collection of over 200 images to help illustrate ecology, plant biology and plant-animal interactions. There are also links to online teaching resources, with a focus on plant science and related subjects; back issues of the printed Newsletter Osmosis, with teaching resources focusing on practical activity are available too.

    The importance of fungi for all aspects of life on Earth and the size of the fungi kingdom, which is six times larger than the kingdom of plant species, makes research in this little studied field crucial: for example, last year a new species of fungi was discovered in Pakistan which is capable of digesting and breaking down plastic; this could be a part of the solution to the global challenge of clearing plastic in oceans and on the land. The Fungi and Lichens website provides technical (but approachable) accounts of the current status of species in the British Isles, including descriptions, images, distribution data, ecology and conservation information. It is aimed at those with a serious interest in fungi, either as natural historians or professional biologists. The project is run by the Mycology Department at Kew Gardens who has just published the 2018 State of the World’s Fungi report.

    Extremely popular daily science show, streamed via YouTube and presented by Hank Green and Michael Aranda. Each day has a different format news (eg. Friday is Science News Day, Monday features a short video about our ‘Weird World’, whereas Wednesday’s video features longer, more in-depth investigations). The format is energetic, upbeat and engaging and the items generally well-researched, although one video on Genetically Modified Organisms caused some controversy and was taken down from the site after being criticised, as biased and inaccurate by science blogger Myles Power. SciShow made a new video Why Are GMOs Bad? in which they acknowledge the flaws in the previous film and present a more balanced case.

    Also known as Sci Fri, this popular American science podcast and radio programme has covered all aspects of science since 1991. One of the first US radio science talk shows, the programme has over the years featured such names as Carl Sagan, Jane Goodall, Sylvia Earle and Oliver Sacks and has a reputation for groundbreaking and original science reporting. According to the site, the show’s founder and executive producer Ira Flatow was the first person to use the word ‘podcast’ on the airwaves. Archives go back as far as 2004 but there is also a substantial amount of video content. A section of the attractively laid out website features a range of educational resources, mainly aimed at primary and secondary school level.
