Things looking up for RattyToday I had a chat with Rob Strachan the UK's premier water vole champion about a collaborative project to restore 27,000 hectares of land along the upper portions of the River Thames, as part of a UK scoping project.
Lessons learnt on this project will hopefully enable the large-scale changes in land use + management, associated with reforms to agricultural subsidies, to have the maximum possible benefit for both farming + wildlife.
P.S. I have been building weblogs for this and other projects for the last few days and will post a summary of my PhD (for those of you who voted for this) next week... I'll catch up with news updates once I have got these new sites up and running.
