Did you see the series Paul Whitehouse, Our Troubled Rivers on BBC2?
Well, the 14th March 2023 is the International Day of Action for Rivers is dedicated to solidarity – communities around the world unite with one voice to say that rivers matter.
Having access to clean and flowing water matters. Everyone should have a say in decisions affecting their water and lives.
We need to stand up for rivers and protect them. We need to be a voice for rivers. Many species of wildlife need them for habitats. But freshwater species have seen an 83% decline since 1970 so please, defend, protect and restore rivers. We need them, and so do wildlife.
This is a great chance on the 14th March to find out what they all do and whether there is any way in which you can help.
