Episode notes

After decades of dramatic decline, our largest beetle is beginning to stabilise. But the mighty stag beetle still needs our help.

So, grab a coffee and settle in as we learn all about stag beetles, why their populations have been declining for so long, how they are beginning to stabilise and the actions we can all take to help these incredible insects.
