In the current issue

In the July/August issue of Resurgence & Ecologist we include a special feature on pilgrimage - a deep-rooted tradition that provides time for reflection and connection to the land. In two complementary articles, Peter Reason and Niki Harré recall their very different journeys and experience of pilgrimage at opposite ends of the Earth.

Oliver Tickell interviews Carlos Magdalena, a botanical horticulturalist at Kew Gardens, aka 'The Plant Messiah', who is on a mission to protect endangered seeds and revive 'extinct' plant species. He is passionate about saving plant diversity, and acknowledging this as the foundation for a flourishing world, and for human prosperity.

Also in this issue, Nick Robins reports on how renewable energy can revive a community; Larry Nielsen profiles distinguished conservationists and reflects on what makes them great; and Peter Tatchell argues for human and animal rights.

All these ideas, together with Ethical Living features, inspiring Arts pages and thoughtful reviews are explored in our July/August issue. We hope you enjoy the featured articles from this issue and invite you to find more about Resurgence & Ecologist magazine and membership of The Resurgence Trust.

Human Rights Are Animal Rights

Human Rights Are Animal Rights
