Freshwater Species Conservation
Fighting for freshwater species
Through evidence-based conservation work, we’ve been protecting freshwater species for more than 35 years.
As the UK’s charity for all freshwaters, our work helps a diverse range of plants and animals that live in many different types of habitats. These include many lesser known and threatened species, some of which are on the brink of extinction. Our species conservation projects are based on scientific evidence so we can target the places that will bring the greatest benefits for life in freshwater.

We’re working across the country to protect rare and threatened freshwater species and understand more about their lifecycles.
