A Science Book a Day – Self-explanatory title! The aim of this site is to ‘engage people in science via books and for them to bring their own ideas and experiences to science’.

Animail – a satirical science site

Bad Science – keeping an eye on poor scientific practice, this site is maintained by acclaimed debunker Ben Goldacre.

Bang! Science – Oxford’s student science magazine – selected articles are available online and a print issue is available three times a year. We featured in the 2015 ‘Women in Science’ issue.

Blue Streak Science – S co-hosts this weekly podcast with JD Goodwin and Kellie Vinal: science, news, politics and Asshole of the Week. Listen in and give us constructive criticism/abuse!

Wild Melbourne – a fantastic site! This effort is intended to increase public awareness about wildlife in urban Melbourne. In an age of over-fishing, habitat fragmentation and an increased human population the owners of Wild Melbourne aim to remind us all of the importance (and fragility) of wildlife everywhere we look. Wonderful photography as well.
