Deadly Turbines

Deadly Turbines

The pursuit of renewable energy has recently mutated into a political power struggle. So-called clean energies are often unfortunately fraught with problems that attack exactly what we actually want to protect: Nature and the environment.
Countless hydroelectric power plants around the world are becoming death traps for migratory fish, their turbines chopping up everything in their path. And to make matters worse, most of the smaller hydropower plants operate inefficiently and perform no service in providing usable energy. Swiss aquatic ecologist Eva Baier lays charges!

Freshwater Seabass in Corsica

Freshwater Seabass in Corsica

The sea bass is probably the most sought-after marine predator in Europe. It can be fished from shore, from boats, from the surface as well as the bottom. It can be found in the North Sea in Norway and in the Atlantic in Morocco and basically everything in between, especially the Mediterranean Sea. This rather opportunistic predator is found in different types of habitats. It likes the brackish waters of mouths and lagoons. But also, surprisingly, it wanders upstream in rivers, sometimes quite far, in fresh water!

ESCAPING WINTER TO SUDAN

After our first lockdown experience on Socotra, where we got stuck for almost four months, it was once again time to hit the open road. Nicola Vitali, the owner of Wild Sea Expedition, had been planning a winter trip to Madagascar for us. Unfortunately, as the Covid cases started rising on the island, Madagascar decided to close its borders for EU citizens. But Nicola isn’t the sort of guy to let such things affect his faculty for planning amazing trips. A couple of days later he called and said; let’s go to Sudan then.
