Policy & Research

Our policy and research work is core to who we are.

We gather evidence to inform our own policies and actions, and to influence local, national and international policies, conservation and land management practices.

We focus our efforts on the issues where we can make the biggest difference for freshwater wildlife.

We use our modest resources strategically to drive positive change in how policy makers, land managers, scientists, conservationists, in fact how everyone views and treats freshwater habitats.
