This project aims to raise awareness of freshwater conservation in Wales. It has been set up jointly by the Countryside Council for Wales, Environment Agency Wales, Pembrokeshire Rivers Trust, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority, Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales and the local Biodiversity Partnership. The project is supported by Afonydd Cymru and five other Rivers Trusts that are spread across Wales.

The project is designed for community groups, youth groups, school groups and other members of the public to participate in.

The theme of the project is ‘Rivers and their Wildlife’.

There is a selection of information and activity sheets about a range of topics in this pack. You are invited to try out as many activities as you would like.

The information pages contain lots of fascinating facts and will tell you all about the wildlife and special habitats that can be found in and around rivers. The activity sheets give you the opportunity to get out and explore the rivers and do a bit of nature detective work.

If you keep your eyes and ears open when you are alongside a river you just never know what sort of wildlife you might see! So why not start exploring a river near you today?!
