Sir David Attenborough is in Cambridge today to open a new campus which he hopes will help save the planet.

The future of our life on Earth is dependent on the natural world – for the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we use – and for the feelings we have of awe and wonder at nature’s extraordinary riches.

In this remarkable age we are learning more and more about the intricacies of our dependence on nature.

Yet our natural world is threatened as never before. The threats are both numerous and interrelated, and no one institution, however effective, can hope to address them all alone. It is for this reason that the work of the Cambridge Conservation Initiative is so exceptional.

By bringing together leaders in research, practice, policy and teaching, we stand the greatest chance of developing the solutions required to save our planet.

– Sir David Attenborough

Plans to build more than a hundred new homes in 'Constable Country' have been approved by councillors.

People living in East Bergholt near Ipswich say the decision to go ahead is an 'insult to the heritage of their village' and that they will now appeal the decision.

But Babergh District Council says it will help them meet the Government's targets for new housing.

Are you getting ready for the Oscar's this week? This little chap certainly is.

Organisers of the Easton and Otley College lambing weekend in Norfolk this weekend are hoping to bring a touch of glamour with an awards theme.

One of its new-born lambs will even be named Oscar.

Last year, the college made the most of Norwich City's victory over Ipswich in the derby match which coincided with the annual event.

Two wild deer which became trapped after getting tangled up in rope in woods in Saffron Walden have been freed by the fire service and the RSPCA.

A passer by spotted the two bucks in difficulty and called the animal charity. Their antlers had become caught in rope which then got stuck around a tree in woods in Sewards End. The deer were becoming very distressed, but eventually they were freed.

The RSPCA says it is important not to leave rubbish around as it can be a danger to many animals.
