A better, brighter website
Last updated: 16th June 2010

We apologise to all our users for the static nature of this website over recent weeks. It has taken longer than expected to resume our service of news and features following a major technical breakdown. However, we are now building a new, improved website that will be provide even better search functions and wider access to useful source of information on all matters relating to people and the environment.

Until this is launched some links within the static site may not function, but the PATP search facility is operating normally and our entire archive may be accessed using this.

P.S. Every day this year we are featuring a different endangered species, thanks to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) whose Red Book provides a unique source of reference. Click on the box below to see today's picture and caption.

PLEASE NOTE: This website should not be confused with peopleandplanet.org - a UK student campaigning organisation on world poverty, human rights and the environment.
