Heritage Lottery Fund success

1st September 2013

Pond Conservation has received initial support for a £965,000 bid from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for its ‘People, Ponds and Water’ project.

Theproject aims to protect the UK’s freshwaters by involving people in survey and practical conservation work on ‘priority ponds’ which are home to the some of our most precious freshwater wildlife – including many plants and animals threatened with extinction in the UK. The project will also help people find out the extent of water pollution in our towns and countryside, as a prelude to protecting the cleanest sites and putting back clean water in the landscape.
