The January issue of Geographical is available now both online and in print.
This month the magazine features a dossier on how big business is moving in on the worldwide lack of pollinators. Despite the EU ban on some neonicotinoid based insecticides being widely welcomed and the early data suggesting it has benefited bees, pesticide and industrial farming lobbies are starting to fight back. Corporate interests are beginning to see this as an opportunity to replace wild pollination services, by shipping around lorry loads of honeybees, genetically modifying honeybees to make them immune to insecticides and even building robotic bees. Could we end up living in a world where only the rich can afford to pay for pollinated crops?
Other articles include infertility and IVF treatment taboos in Senegal, a look at the black market for abalone in South Africa and shining a spotlight on the Wakhan Valley. Plus, this month’s Explore feature focuses on Felicity Aston’s all-female Euro-Arabian North Pole trek.
