The Thames Catchment Community Eels Project – Get Involved

Every year glass eels arrive from the Sargasso Sea and swim up the Thames and its tributaries, however this journey is hindered by the many man made barriers in our rivers. The Thames Catchment Community Eels Project is a partnership project, incorporating citizen science. Our trained volunteer ‘Eel Force’ are out surveying obstacles to inform future projects for eels. The project also incorporates monitoring of eel migration; as well as raising the profile of this Critically Endangered fish through classroom Eel Workshops, Eel Assemblies, Talks and Eel & Wildlife Riverbank Walks.

Find out how you can get involved and how the project will help this critically endangered fish.
