On Monday I was pleased to have a meeting with the people heading up the World Wide Fund for Nature’s campaign “Our Rivers”. The “Our Rivers” campaign is a coalition of the WWF, RSPB, the Angling Trust and the Association of Rivers Trusts and seeks to highlight the issues facing the rivers of England and Wales. To find out more about their campaign click here.
We discussed a range of local and national issues facing the rivers of England and more specifically North East Hertfordshire’s own chalk rivers, and I was very happy to learn that the WWF are to issue a special report highlighting the problems specific to the rivers Mimram and Beane. Having the WWF on board is fantastic news for the chalk rivers of Hertfordshire!
