The Freshwater Links philosophy is that ‘The whole is greater than the sum of its parts’. Freshwater Links aims to empower local communities and researchers by connecting the growing number of volunteer, regulatory and research datasets in the Thames Catchment together. Discover datasets or understand your local aquatic environments, and find out how volunteers, NGOs and government organisations can work together and encourage ideas that will help to improve the quality of their local aquatic environments. .
Discover freshwater projects across the river Thames catchment where you can get involved. Each of these projects is developing productive partnerships between scientists and volunteers to help improve the state of natural environments and carry out important research.
