Mark Parr, founder of The Electric Vehicle Company, drives his battery powered Smart Car up a country lane in Guernsey, Channel Islands, Great Britain. Mark converted the petrol engine Smart Car to an electric vehicle, which costs about one penny per mile to run. Mark will be installing lithium ion batteries which will give the car an average range of 50 miles on a full charge. These batteries can be discharged 2000 times to 80 percent of their capacity so they should last as long as the car.
Mark 's electric Smart car is an ideal solution for short distance commuting and island living. The car can be charged overnight ready for a full day of trips around Guernsey's 24 square miles.

Sealord photography's biodiversity images began with a focus on international commercial seafood species and the marine life of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, Great Britain.
Sealord photography has a growing collection of digital images covering climate change, the environment and sustainability issues.
Sealord photography also covers the Guernsey community and particularly the fund raising activities of Guernsey charities as part of the island's social sustainability.
The fish, shellfish and marine life images would not be possible if it were not for the generosity of commercial and recreational fishermen in Guernsey, and seafood suppliers at various trade shows in the USA, and wholesalers at Fulton Fish Market in New York City.
Many marine biologists have helped identify or confirm the identity of marine species photographed. These people have been mentioned when possible.
