Details of this edition:  


A good mix of news this week, starting with big news from our featured charity The Rivers Trust who published their latest State of Our Rivers Report
Elsewhere tree planting was much discussed, Coed Cadw, the Woodland Trust in Wales is considering their response to the Welsh Government's Sustainable Farming Scheme stating that fair and flexible approach could meet tree cover requirement for Welsh farms. But before everyone jumps for their tree planting kit research from the University of Sheffield reveals that side effects of wide scale forestation could reduce carbon removal benefits by up to a third and the Bumblebee Conservation Trust is concerned that tree planting targets could put key bumblebee habitats at risk. However, new evidence from Lancaster University shows UK solar parks can provide for bees and butterflies. And finally for this week, how about some sparkle? Pregnancy testing with supersized glittery poo at Blackpool Zoo.
