Wonderful news. Thanks for sharing.

These UK rainforest stories always seem a bit odd. Yes we want to find them but as soon as they are publicised they get overused due to latest Hobbit film or whatever. The issue of overgrazing (due to government subsidies?) has been known about for very many years but almost no action taken to protect the areas. So will identifying the last remaning chunks actually be good or bad for them? Without action to ensure proper management then the search may not be a good thing.
