Hello Hannah and thank you for your message.

We are aware of this incident and have addressed the matter internally.

Celeste Biever is a staff reporter at New Scientist who covers, among other specialties, stories related to the intersection of science and culture on the topic of evolutionary biology. The exchange in question is unique in Celeste’s history with us and not representative of New Scientist reporting. We are not currently pursuing a story about your group and do not intend to publish any part of the communication Celeste initiated with you.

I hope this will address any concerns you may have.

Best regards,

Ivan Semeniuk
