Latest Issue

In the September issue of Geographical we ask if bacterial resistance has spelt an end to the so-called 'golden age' of antibiotics? With so many countries around the world relying on effective treatment for ever more prevalent infections and diseases, has an overuse of antibiotic prescription put the world's health on a perilous knife edge?

Plus, entertainment technology and wildlife conservation combine in the world of virtual reality documentaries. Does putting the viewer at the heart of the action foster a far greater sense of involvement in the fate of endangered species?

We also visit Biosphere 2 to ask what lessons can be learnt from one of the 1990s' most ground-breaking scientific experiments, look at the pollution-filled lake standing in the way of China's eco-city dreams, relive a thrilling survival story in the caves of Mexico, and get hands-on with the craftsmen of Eswatini.

All this plus: photographing water, the wildlife of the Galapagos, a homecoming on Raoul Island, and all the latest news from around your world.
