The recent heavy rains have led to an increase in the number of carp in the River Fome in Dorset. Here's the reason why.
New figures released by the GMB union shows that council cleaners are dealing with 72,597 cases of fly-tipping in the South and South East.
The power of the sun is being used to deep freeze two billion seeds at the Millennium Seed Bank in Sussex.
Henrik Dahle, from Southampton, climbed a different tree every day for a year - in ten different countries.
A spokesperson from the Environment Agency has said all the swans hit by a mysterious oil spill along the River Thames in Berkshire have been removed from the water. More than eighty of the birds are being cared for at a rescue centre.
The birds affected bords were found in the area between Windsor Bridge and Eton Bridge, and recovered on Friday and Saturday.
Environment Agency investigators are still trying to find the source of the oil, with possible causes ranging from flytipping, leakage from boats or tanks, to faulty drainage systems. However there are only small pockets of the substance left in the water, which makes it harder to detect the origin.
It is hoped that it will be possible to release the swans back into the River Thames in the next few days.
The region's bees remain under threat with the latest figures revealing a third of the south's colonies failed to survive this past winter. On the Isle of Wight there are plans to avoid cutting back vegetation on some roadsides to preserve habitats.
Another way of tackling the decline is to create new habitats and today volunteers began work on a new wildflower meadow at Titchfield Haven in Hampshire. When its complete it will be the sixty-second 'Bee World' created by the Friends of the Earth environmental group. Nia Mason reports.
The interviewees are Tim Pratt, the Co-ordinator, Gosport & Fareham Friends of the Earth; Karima Englefield, Assistant Ranger at the Titchfield National Haven Nature Reserve; and Caroline Dinenage (Conservative), Karima Englefield, Assistant Ranger at the Titchfield National Haven Nature Reserve; and Caroline Dinenage, the MP for Gosport.
A stark new report from erosion experts has concluded that rising sea levels will wash away beaches flooding hundreds of homes and businesses over the next 100 years, unless there is massive investment in new flood defences on the Sussex coast.
The scientists examined the five miles of coast between Brighton Marina and Shoreham in their research.
However, some business leaders say the warnings are 'alarmist' - and that the report could drive down property values.
The interviewees in John Ryall's report are: Councillor Ollie Sykes from Brighton & Hove City Council (Green); John Davey, Harbour Master at Brighton Marina; and Patrick Kneath, a property consultant.
A major new wildlife haven has opened at a former landfill site at Thurrock in Essex today.
The Thameside Nature Park is one of The Wildlife Trust's largest restoration projects, transforming the 120-acre Mucking Landfill into a range of wild habitats. The land is now home to rare bees, birds and reptiles, other animals and plants.
For decades, the capital's waste has been piled onto a landfill site on the north bank of the Thames Estuary.
Now it's being given an overhaul - and transformed into a nature haven for rare birds, bees and reptiles. It will eventually expand to cover 845 acres - around twice the size of Regents Park. Here's Piers Hopkirk.
The Forestry Commission is planning to spray woodland near Pangbourne in West Berkshire to eradicate a pesky species of caterpillar. The Oak Processionary Moth (OPM) caterpillars can eat the leaves off entire trees, leaving the trees vulnerable to other pests and diseases.
A helicopter will spray the woodland twice over 7 to 14 days in May. This is the time of year when OPM caterpillars typically emerge from eggs in oak trees. As well as being a risk to trees the 'pests' can cause a painful rash in humans and animals. Eye and throat problems have also been reported.
The area to be sprayed includes Herridge's and Broom Copses and other trees nearby. The Forestry Commission, along with West Berkshire Council are reassuring the public that the spray which is a bacterial agent occurring naturally and widely in soil poses no risk to humans or animals.
VIDEO: The EcoIslands project aims to create what it calls a 'greenprint' which can then be used by other island communities and ultimately countries around the world.
A novel energy-saving device has been unveiled in Kent. It involves surplus hot water from a power plant on the Isle of Grain and a 4 and half kilometre pipe.
The process saves enough energy to heat 100,000 homes a year and has been given the blessing of a government minister as Derek Johnson now explains.
The Minister for Energy and Climate Change, Gregory Barker MP, will open the new energy centre at Waitrose Bracknell today.
Mr Barker will be shown the latest 'green' technologies that make it the supermarket's lowest carbon branch and discuss how the sector can be more energy efficient.
The store now gets all its energy from locally grown wood, from plantations such as Yateley Wood (above), which is then chipped.
