As the UK's charity for all freshwaters, we provide the evidence to protect them
We’re focused on affecting change – and often the biggest impact can be achieved through scientific research that influences policy and legislation. In our policy work we target our activities on the issues where we can make the biggest difference for freshwater wildlife.
The freshwater industry is massive and complicated – and it affects everyone. It’s difficult to make effective change, so we focus our efforts on work to protect freshwater biodiversity and work with many different partners to achieve this. We work with other NGOs, with the water industry and with government agencies to help develop new polices that will lead to more effective protection of freshwater biodiversity.
