At the moment there is a huge amount of interest in ponds and other freshwater habitats, which is really brilliant! However it does mean that we cannot always reply to all the correspondence we receive.

Your interest in our work is very important to us and we have tried to provide a wealth of information on our website which we hope you will find helpful. This means that we can focus our efforts on our vital work to conserve the freshwater habitats that need our attention: we hope you agree that this makes the best use of our limited resources.
