I love river swimming, a wonderful way to get close to nature. But this reminded me that there is no public health monitoring of rivers. Use their fab map to determine where is safer. And support to improve the health of our rivers!

If you have ever found joy in rivers—whether you're a swimmer, a walker, an angler or simply someone who loves the natural world—please use your voice to speak up for them. We all need to unite against the the threats they are facing 👊

Excellent thread, Kate. Another compelling reason to make sure Natural England is funded properly for (1) monitoring - so we know the state of nature; (2) enforcement - to protect the state of nature; and (3) advice - to improve the state of nature.

It is worth repeating - although depressing that it should be necessary. If you love gardens and gardening and have one iota of responsibility for our ecology and environment DO NOT USE PEAT! It really is that simple.

Helpful thread on how and are trying to hide the declining state of our best places for nature. They aren’t the only ones. ‘km river enhanced’ anyone? None of this stuff is easy but has to start with an honest appraisal of where we are

“I’m really excited at this idea of a bushier, woodier, wilder landscape, connecting things, with watercourses, with hedgerows, some real wild areas and not-so-wild areas. Hedges have a key role to play in that.” Cambs farmer and chair
