In the words of Martin Hesp, Editor at Large at the Western Morning News
, "We need to fully digest the idea that so much in nature is linked.
"For example our need for clean drinking water can have huge benefits for landscapes far and near.
"Thanks to companies like South West Water working in conjunction with organisations like Devon Wildlife Trust...as well as farmers, we now have Upstream Thinking where engineers ensure water is clean before it gets into the pipes rather than at the other end just before it enters the taps.
"Cleaning dirty water is expensive. Upstream Thinking is a cheaper option, which means less expensive bills for us - and also has huge benefits for wildlife in places like Exmoor or Dartmoor."
