Native title granted over the ocean in NSW, Prague's tree appreciation cycling route, and Edinburgh Zoo diverts 98% of waste away from landfill

Native title has been granted over the ocean for the first time in NSW, Australia, giving protection to the Dirrangan reef at the mouth of the Clarence River; 

Prague has developed a cycling route which showcases the city's most important and unusual trees, such as a plane tree under which Beethoven is said to have sat and composed; and Edinburgh Zoo has demonstrated how behaviour change strategies can encourage more people to recycle. With more than 570,000 people visiting the attraction it has still managed to divert 98% of their waste away from landfill.
