Ranunculus. What.A.Word. Bliss! It sounds like JJR Tolkien coined it... The huge, powerful Rununculus Fluitans smote the dastardly Singleuseplasticus with a single mighty blow. In reality, think a bathing buttercup - lush plant, lush word! Oh, & check @MerseyRivers Week out.
Announcing our #MerseyRiversWeek programme of events! From the 4th - 10th July we will be hosting a range of activites across the Mersey Catchment, celebrating our wonderful rivers. Come get involved if you can, more details here: bit.ly/MRTevents

Most plastic before made into our everyday plastic items (from plastic bottles to chairs) is transported around as pellets aka nurdles In UK an estimated 53 billion are lost/ yr with 11.5 trillion globally. Watch 👇 to know more #NurdleAction
Never heard of nurdles? You’re not the only one. But trillions of these pea-sized plastic pellets, used to create plastic items we all use, leak into the ocean each year and harm marine wildlife. It's time for #NurdleAction. Find out more ⬇️

Oh, love this! Deffo one that'll get @Russell_Arnott , @DWallPalmer & other plankton otaku smiling! The microscopic is something we need to delve into more, especially with school age children. Think too of the incredibly life in a handful of soil? @GeorgeMonbiot
Ever wondered what seawater looks like under a microscope? Well, wonder no more. A concentrated sample of seawater magnified 25X, showing an incredible ecosystem of crab larva, diatoms, bacteria, fish eggs, zooplankton. 📸 credit David Littschwager.
