Today is World Penguin Day, what a good excuse to dig out all those cute, funny and sometimes thought-provoking photos of my favourite bird! The awareness day promotes the conservation of these amazing creatures and coincides with the northward migration of adelie penguins and their return to Antarctica after months spent at sea.<--break->

It’s decision time today for the future of the giant mammal as a U.N. top court rules whether Japan has the right to hunt whales in the Antarctic.

Who would think that when you are trying to get rid off your dandruff you could be eliminating the orangutans and tigers too? When I look at these images of forest destruction and biodiversity I’m once again reminded that even your shampoo could harbor a dirty secret.

I can’t believe it’s already three years since the Fukushima disaster struck. Thousands of people were forced to flee their homes and had to rebuild their lives elsewhere, because of the high levels of radiaition. Japanese photographer Noriko Hayashi documents the struggle of some of the victims, who feel the government has abandoned them.

When I look at these shockingly colourful pictures of clothes manufacturing in China, it is a stark reminder that you don’t always know the full story behind the production of your kid's garments.

Captain Pete Willcox is home, and the rest of the non-Russians in the Arctic 30 are either home as well or on their way. There have been some amazing scenes on their arrival home - here are a few of my favourite photos from the last two days.

We’ve had a fantastic, hot summer this year, cooling down with a drink of water whenever needed.

So when I look at Bo Qiu’s photo feature of water shortages in Inner Mongolia it is a strong reminder that easy access to clean water is not a given for everyone.

Greenpeace activists protest outside the Russian Embassy in London

The last few days have been very emotional for me. I work on the picture desk and dramatic images have been coming in showing the Russian coast guards reacting with force to our peaceful action at Gazprom’s oil platform. Now, the Arctic 30 have been remanded in custody for up to two months.
