Healthy rivers are a powerful ally in mitigating the effects of climate change; they can protect communities from flood and drought events, and they bolster ecosystem and biodiversity resilience.

Yet, the majority of our rivers in the UK & Ireland are far from healthy.

No single stretch of river in England or Northern Ireland is in good overall health.

Just 15% of English, 31% of Northern Irish and 50% of Irish river stretches reach good ecological health standards.

Toxic chemicals that remain in ecosystems for decades pollute every stretch of English rivers.

The Rivers Trust are conservation experts with a wealth of data and expertise at their fingertips. They bring together the people, knowledge, data and intelligence to help rivers thrive again.

Using their expertise, reach and member Trusts local knowledge, The Rivers Trust works with farmers, government and businesses to provide advice and resources for their communities.

We are fundraising to support the essential work being done to save our rivers and help communities to thrive.
