We are so excited to announce that the first CROWDFUNDED barrier has been removed!! The Crosthwaite Culvert in Northern England needed 10.000 donated funds and we did it together! By opening the stream, it is hoped that it will be colonised by aquatic plants, insects and fish species. They are also installing an educational freshwater pond where local, young students can come learn about the freshwater environment and species! This is an amazing project and ambition that would not have been possible without the generosity of the people who are investing in the rewilding of our future.
News for: Culvert
Fish need to move to find food, escape predators and reach suitable habitat for reproduction. Too often, however, human activities get in the way. Dams, weirs and culverts (the tunnels and drains often found under roads) can create barriers that fragment habitats, isolating fish populations.
