Quiet and healthy flows the gently meandering river | Stephen Moss 22 Dec 2018, 12:15pm Quiet and healthy flows the gently meandering river | Stephen Moss
Restoring the bends to our waterways helps wildlife thrive and enhances the landscape I was delighted to hear that conservationists in the New Forest have announced a 10-year project to make their streams and brooks more “bendy”, in a process known as “rewetting”. They are adding meanders where before there were none, to slow the water’s flow, prevent flooding and improve habitats for wildlife.

I won’t be eating turkey this year because of meat’s environmental impact This Christmas is the first time I won’t be eating turkey. I’ve become a vegetarian. Actually, at home I’m a vegan. And very occasionally, when travelling, I’ll eat chicken, when it’s that or go hungry. I wonder what you think about that. That I’m a patronising hypocrite? That I’m deeply confused? Maybe you couldn’t care less. Few things are more personal than what you choose to eat, but few choices have more impact on the health of our bodies and our planet. That’s a recipe for a very challenging debate, so let’s tuck in.
