    An online audiovisual library of videos, photos and sound recordings of the world’s birds. It is available to the public free of charge. Aiming to offer at least one video, photo or sound recording per species initially, the long term objective is to include material covering as many subspecies as possible and a variety of biological aspects (e.g. behaviour, feeding, breeding) for every species. The site main sections are: Explore, Upload and What’s New (i.e. new species on the site). Searching capabilities are quite decent and results can be filtered by type of material (i.e. photo, video, sound). Up-loading is free, but users need to be registered. The site also offers specially curated quizzes to test the users’ ornithological skills.

    WRI is a global research organisation with over 700 experts and staff whose work focuses on six critical issues at the intersection of environment and development: climate, energy, food, forests, water, cities and transport, and ocean. The WRI produces short videos to communicate their research and impact. They serve as visual, non-technical entry-point into the work they do. The site also offers access to three other vast resources: Presentations, where experts talk about their research; Data Library with maps, charts, data sets, infographics and other visual resources which can be searched by type, topic or geography; and Data Platforms, which provides open access to reliable data for those interested in monitoring forests with satellites, tracking the drivers of climate change, understanding indigenous communities’ land rights, planning for water scarcity, and examining the cross-section of global environmental issues.

    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.
