Fair warning. There are two fairly predictable puns in this mornings post. Never mind. It’s worth it.
Here’s a nice interview about the research done on the effects of the beavers in Devon by the Dr. Brazier at the University of Exeter. The interview is accompanied by some beautiful photos from the Wildwood Trust. Enjoy!
I spent most of yesterday working on my mural presentation for PRMCC. I made this to show something about the history of the beaver story being important to Martinez. I’m thinking of calling it “A community tale” or maybe “A community tail“…
Seems like it makes the point to me. What do you think?
BK sent this my way this morning and it’s pretty alarming. Apparently nitrates are in our lovely high mountain lakes too and affection biodiversity everywhere. Gosh I wish we only knew of SOME ANIMAL that was good at removing nitrates cheaply…but I’m just drawing a blank…any thoughts?
Unlike temperature and dissolved oxygen, the presence of normal levels of nitrates usually does not have a direct effect on ecosystems. However, excess levels of nitrates in water can create conditions that significantly alter an area’s biodiversity
