Back in September, "Man of Steel" actor and Durrell Global Ambassador Henry Cavill paid the Durrell Wildlife Park a visit to learn more about the Livingstone's fruit bat, a species that is in serious risk of extinction in the wild.

Muffin tins have served many purposes over the years, almost all of which involved, well, cooking muffins. For some time, few had a better idea for what to do with them.
