The Queen's Life Guard
Horse Guards is named after the troops who have mounted the Queen's Life Guard on this spot since the Restoration of King Charles II in 1660 and remains the official entrance to St James's and Buckingham Palace. This is why The Queen's Life Guard is still mounted here. Apart from members of the Royal Family or cavalrymen on duty, everyone needs the Sovereign's permission in the form of an Ivory Pass to either drive or ride through Horse Guards.

Right now, there are thousands of rescue dogs in RSPCA animal centres all desperately looking for forever homes. Many of these dogs have had a bad start in life but they can still make the most amazing companions – they just need your help to make that happen.

With centres across the country and staff that will help you find the perfect four legged friend – adopting couldn’t be easier. Once you’ve spent time with your new dog, trained staff will visit you and your family at home, discuss any specific needs and make sure your house is suitable.

Taking a rescue dog home is both exciting and rewarding and best of all you’ll be giving a dog that really needs it – a second chance in life. In this series, we’re trying to find a fantastic new home for a super rescue dog each week.

The dogs we’ll be featuring are some the RSPCAs longer stay residents and for no particular reason they’ve been overlooked. Maybe, you could give them a second chance in life. Follow this link to find out who we’re trying to rehome this week.  http://www.channel5.com/dog-rescuers-appeal/

Shark Trust  

Shark Trust, 4 Creykes Court, 5 Craigie Drive, The Millfields, Plymouth, Devon, PL1 3JB.

Established in 1997, the Shark Trust started on the corner of a desk in Newbury. By 2000, the Trust had a small team and had set up shop in a room that was originally designed as an ice cream parlour outside the newly-built National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth, UK.

Twenty years on we have grown a little in size and a lot in terms of our reach and influence. Still based in Plymouth (Britain’s Ocean City), a city with a rich heritage in fisheries and marine science, we now work at an international level to push for the changes needed to safeguard the future of all sharks, skates and rays (and not forgetting the chimaeras).

Initially set up to be a voice for UK sharks,skates and rays, the Trust team from the outset worked alongside the UK Government and an ever-growing network of partners to protect and manage sharks in British waters. The UK is now internationally recognised as a champion for shark conservation and we strive to use our influence to effect change further afield. Shark Trust Membership helps the Trust by giving us a louder voice to call for positive change and giving us an income to support our programmes. 

Every Shark Trust Member receives a welcome pack and a copy of our bi-annual magazine Shark Focus. https://shop.sharktrust.org/collections/shark-trust-membership

See British sharks.  http://www.sharktrust.org/en/shark_factsheets
Become involved. So rewarding to do and help the magnificent sharks at same time.

Royal Geographical Society Exhibition  
Enduring Eye: The Antarctic Legacy of Sir Ernest Shackleton and Frank Hurley
~One of the greatest ever photographic records of human survival~
Royal Geographical Society (w IBG)  National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh    
Honouring the achievements of Sir Ernest Shackleton and the men of the Endurance Expedition of 1914-1917, newly digitised images will reveal previously unseen details of the crew’s epic struggle for survival both before and after their ship was destroyed.

At the heart of the exhibition are more than 90 high resolution images, taken by Shackleton’s official expedition photographer Frank Hurley, and saved by him under the most extreme circumstances to provide a lasting record of the men of the Endurance and their story. One of the greatest ever photographic records of human survival on display in a remarkable new exhibition created by the Society, curated by polar historian Meredith Hooper. http://www.rgs.org/WhatsOn/Exhibitions/

Founded in 1830, the Royal Geographical Society is dedicated to the development and promotion of geographical knowledge, together with its application to the challenges facing society and the environment.  While most people are aware that the RGS is a members institution, non-members can visit exhibitions in the Pavilion and enter the Foyle Reading Room.  A visit to the RGS is often a rewarding experience as the Pavilion exhibition space is a great way to enjoy either historical exhibits from the RGS archives or to see the latest work of the RGS and its members.

Read about Kinross
The town sits beside Loch Leven, the largest loch of the Scottish Lowlands. Declared a nature reserve in 1964, the loch attracts around 20,000 pink-footed geese every autumn. Sitting peacefully on an islet within the loch itself is the enchanting Lochleven Castle. Between April and September you can take the small ferry to the castle which gained infamy when it acted as a prison to Mary Queen of Scots in 1567. Her dramatic escape by boat is one of Scotland's most romantic tales.

SPEAK is not opposed to research that will benefit people and animals. The reason for our continued presence in Oxford is to demonstrate for ethical and relevant research. SPEAK is in the vanguard of a movement dedicated to ending the reliance on animal experimentation in favour of 21st century technology.

Beachwatch is our national beach cleaning and litter surveying programme - helping people all around the UK to care for their coastline. Some of our best-loved marine wildlife is under threat from the waste and litter in our seas, with hundreds of species accidentally eating or becoming entangled in litter. Litter on our beaches is hazardous to people so we all have a part to play in turning the tide on litter. Join an event or organise your own & be part of the most influential fight against marine litter in the UK!

Our wonderful seas, shores and wildlife are under threat.  Almost nowhere in UK seas is marine wildlife safe from harm. We need to establish vital marine protected areas where wildlife can recover and flourish.

Levels of beach litter have doubled over the last decade. MCS works to clear our seas of the rising tide of rubbish that is so dangerous to sea life, including seabirds, whales and dolphins. 88% of Europe’s fish stocks are overfished or depleted. MCS works to reduce the overfishing which is devastating the life in our seas, and promotes sustainable seafood alternatives. Our work ensures that the sea’s rich wildlife can be restored, fish stocks grow more plentiful, and our beaches and seawater become cleaner.

'Trashed' Film w/ Jeremy Irons 
Worldwide

This very important film looks at the risks to the food chain and the environment through pollution of our air, land, and sea by waste. It reveals surprising truths about very immediate and potent dangers to our health. It is a global conversation from Iceland to Indonesia between the film star Jeremy Irons and scientists, politicians, and ordinary individuals whose health and livelihoods have been fundamentally affected by waste pollution. 

Usually and emotionally the film is both horrific and beautiful: an interplay of human interest and political wake-up call.   UK Screening Enquiries----Pls contact
