The development of a new ‘in field’ App dramatically improves efficiency and provides consistent data recording.
Restoration of unnamed tributay of River Chew offers new habitat for rare wildlife.
A lost river has returned to the Somerset countryside for the first time in 70 years, and with it a new habitat for several species of rare and threatened wildlife.
To avoid a climate emergency we need to act fast. Rewilding and other natural climate solutions can draw millions of tonnes of CO2 out of the air through restoring and protecting our living systems. We call on the UK government to make a bold financial and political commitment to nature's recovery.
We need to limit global temperature rise to 1.5C to avoid the catastrophic effects of climate breakdown. To do this we need both to reduce carbon emissions and to remove carbon from the atmosphere. By drawing down carbon, nature's recovery can help us reach net carbon zero.

Catchment Based Approach (CaBA) have put together a very useful and informative 'Biodiversity Pack'.
The 'CaBA Biodiversity Pack' has been produced to support catchment partnerships and others in their delivery of freshwater and wetland biodiversity projects.
Building on a host of existing habitat management guidance, the pack aims to:
1. Provide an ecological explanation of why natural ecosystem function is important to our freshwater and wetland wildlife; and
Twelve years since they first published the guide, the Australian River Restoration Centre have released an updated Stock and Waterways: a NSW Managers Guide.
In 2006, Land and Water Australia released the 'Stock and Waterways: A Manager's Guide'. Due to it's popularity, the guide was reprinted three times and has become a key practitioner reference document.
Twelve years later, they are delighted that their partners WaterNSW have joined with them through the Rivers of Carbon Program to update the document into 'Stock and Waterways: A NSW Manager's Guide'.
Beavers will become a protected species in Scotland from May, Environment Secretary Roseanna Cunningham has said.
The long-awaited and controversial move - opposed by many farmers - follows extensive wrangling over how their numbers should be managed.
Farming leaders have raised concerns about the damage caused to agricultural land from their dam-building.
