During the last month, we've uploaded a great range of animal, plant and landscape coverage from many parts of the globe. Highlights include marine material from David Fleetham, Linda Pitkin and Franco Banfi, dramatic images from Svalbard by Ole Jorgen Liodden, new landscapes from David Noton, wild red pandas, and images from Mozambique and Namibia by new contributor Jen Guyton, featuring endearing meerkats and the weird Welwitschia mirabilis, one of the world's oldest and most primitive plants.
