We discuss in News: Leaky Dams, rise in poisoned owl no.s in Epping Forest and dormouse decline.
The main topic of discussion is Graham’s question:
It was interesting and encouraging to hear in episode 1 of your podcast that the young children seem to be growing up with quite a good grasp of natural knowledge, and that they seem to “get it” more than their parents’ generation. My question therefore is: How do we get their parent’s generation more interested in and engaged with the natural world?

The UK government now has a ‘leaky woody dam scheme’ under which landowners in flood risk catchments are paid £461.39 for each small leaky woody dam they build and £764.42 for each large one. I wish everyone would understand that beavers do this for free! https://t.co/x60JFxyRmf pic.twitter.com/ibGeQlf2ba
