What’s in ISSUE 25 / SUPERMAYAN?

SUPERMAYAN

‘Tren Maya’, a new railway construction project on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, is putting the region’s cenotes at risk. But President Obrador's plan is met by increasing criticism – at the helm of the opposition is environmentalist, scientist and diver Camila Jaber.

NOMADS OF THE SULU SEA

Moving from island to island, and sometimes settling along the coastal areas of the Malay Archipelago, the stateless seafaring Bajau lead a simple life in one of the most enchanting places on earth. They are some of the last remaining nomads of the sea.

HOTSPOT OF BIODIVERSITY 

On the remote island of Príncipe, government officials, conservationists and communities have come together to fight plastic pollution and protect its dense sea turtle populations.

tHE FRAGILE MAJESTY OF THE LABRADOR SEA

The Labrador Sea’s unique conditions make it the ideal home many species. Yet the long- term survival of the plants and animals that inhabit the Labrador Sea is far from certain. The impacts of climate change are starting to be felt in earnest.

TREGOR'S SECRETS

Classified as critically endangered in the Northeast and Northwest Atlantic, the high number of porbeagle shark sightings in Breton waters poses several questions. A group of researchers tries to find answers.
