welcome

PFK’s new home: Warners Group Publications. TIMES ARE changing, dear reader! As you read this, the PFK team is in the middle of a seismic shift. After this issue, we will no longer be a part of Bauer Media, but instead we’ll be the freshest acquisition of Warners Group Publications. What does that mean for you?

It’s thought that Brunei’s rainforests may be some of the last safe havens for the endangered wildlife of Borneo, some species of which…
