Annual Review 2015

Welcome to our first ever Annual Review for the rivers trust movement in England, Wales and Ireland.
It’s extraordinary to think that we now number well over 50 rivers trusts, with around half as many again in Scotland grouped under our sister body, Rivers and Fisheries Trusts of Scotland (RAFTS). For the first time in our history we also share the same Chairman, Andrew Wallace, who has done an excellent job both sides of the border and has helped strengthen us considerably as a movement.

It’s been a very busy year for both The Rivers Trust (RT), representing the movement and seeking funding at National and European levels, and the Trusts on the ground where I am constantly amazed and humbled by the wonderful work that takes place. The following pages are testament to the extremely important work you all deliver through a vast growing range of projects and the difference healthy rivers can make to wildlife, fisheries and catchment communities.

Key Statistics (2010-2014)
146 multi fish species barriers eased, passed or removed
87 eel barriers eased, passed or tidal flap valves installed
88 riparian habitat improvements
Over 130 waterbodies with increased ecological potential
44 feasibility studies for further improvement work
Resulting in over 2,800 km of rivers with improved ecological potential
