Surveys

Ongoing

Oxford City Waterblitz

Clean water, free from nutrient pollution, is one of the most important drivers for healthy freshwater habitats. You can use our free, quick and simple water quality kits to help us map water quality around Oxford. 

The kits measure the nitrate and phosphate levels – two widespread pollutants that can cause severe detriment to wildlife. We are particularly keen to engage with schools and community groups, but anyone is welcome to take part.

Email emayhew@freshwaterhabitats.org.uk to find out more and order some water quality kits.

January to May 2020

Spawn Survey

Take part in our annual survey by recording your sightings of breeding frogs and toads.  The survey will run from January to May 2020. For more information, and to enter your sightings online, visit the Spawn Survey page.
