European Pond Conservation Network

The European Pond Conservation Network  promotes the conservation of ponds and their biodiversity in a changing European landscape

Individuals and organisations carrying out research and practical conservation projects across Europe come together under the EPCN banner.  Every two years, a workshop is held to share the latest knowledge and the effectiveness of pond conservation projects.

In May 2018, the workshop is on the Costa Brava, Spain. Visit for more information. 

In May 2008, the network published The Pond Manifesto, which aims to ‘provide a wake-up call to the importance of ponds and the outline of a strategey that will help us use, maintain and enjoy ponds in the decades ahead’.
