Harriet Alvis, CEO West Wales Rivers Trust

Harriet has a passion for restoring rivers back to as close to natural conditions as possible, to ensure that they are resilient to land use and climatic pressures. River health cannot be achieved by looking at river channels alone, and Harriet is enthusiastic about joining up delivery with all sectors in West Wales in order to achieve integrated catchment management, ensuring not only healthy rivers, but the biodiverse and productive landscapes that they drain from.

She has worked within the Rivers Trust movement for 9 years, first joining West Wales Rivers Trust in 2019. Harriet is also an active member of the Institute of Fisheries Management, including as co-editor for FISH magazine.
