England’s (estimated to be 85% of the world’s total) rare and valuable chalk streams face significant challenges. Their ecosystems are the result of a particular combination of geology, rich aquatic biodiversity and past management activities. Highlighting its unique character, environmental scientist, Dr Phil Teasdale, will tell you all about the upper River Allen in NE Dorset – its restoration, conservation and management.
