Listen to our exclusive interview with actor and Downton Abbey star Peter Egan talking about bears, his journey into veganism, and how he discovered he had vertigo halfway down a fundraising abseil! He’ll also be telling us his views on the soft sentences handed out to hunters who broke the neck of a wildlife crime investigator.
We also look at the threat to Africa’s last major population of elephants - as politicians in southern Africa look to legalise trophy hunting. Plus we investigate the growing number of lawsuits against governments and oil corporations for failing to act on climate change. There’s also a round-up of all the top stories around animal welfare, the environment and human rights.
